When they had the cash (like after a robbery), Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid liked to live in style. Records from New York’s Tiffany & Company show that a James Ryan—a known alias for Butch—purchased a watch for $40 in 1901. There are no known photos of that timepiece.
But there is one of the watch bought by Sundance. He spent $15.35 on a pendant watch. Etta/Ethyl Place wore it in a photo taken by the DeYoung Portrait Studio in January 1901—just before the outlaw trio caught a steamer to South America.
