Director Steven Spielberg obtained permission from the museum that hold Abraham Lincoln's original pocket watch to record the sound of the watch for use in the movie. So, in several scenes where Lincoln is in contemplative thought and fiddling with his watch, the ticking watch sound is actually the same as Lincoln heard 150 years ago.
