AN ANTIQUE FRENCH ART DECO PLATINUM, DIAMONDS&BLUE SAPPHIRES LADIESWATCH ~WRISTWATCH!
THIS IS BEYOND FABULOUS, WORKING CONDITION, ANTIQUE, TRUE ART DECO ERA ~CIRCA 1925 LADIES MECHANICAL WINDING WRISTWATCH WITH A FINE 17 JEWEL MOVEMENT IS SURELY THE MOST OUTSTANDING I HAVE EVER SEEN. THE CASE IS FRENCH MADE AND IF YOU COLLECT ART DECO JEWELRY THEN YOU WELL KNOW THAT ANYTHING MADE IN FRANCE THAT'S FROM THE ART DECO PERIOD IS BY FAR CONSIDERED THE MOST DESIREABLE AMONGST COLLECTORS. IT'S WHY I HAVE KEPT IT FOR MYSELF EVER SINCE ACQUIRING IT FROM AN ESTATE I HANDLED IN BEVERLY HILLS OF A WEALTHY TELEVISION PRODUCER'S WIFE OVE A QUARTER CENTURY AGO. THE BEAUTIFUL AND HIGHLY STYLIZED, WITH OBVIOUS ART DECO MOTIFS, CASE FRONT IS ADORNED WITH 32 HAND SET NATURAL, UNENHANCED, FACETED, ROUND, SINGLE CUT, GENUINE DIAMONDS MEASURING 1.7mm TO 2.0mm (AVERAGING 1 POINT A PIECE) WITH A COMBINED WEIGHT OF 32 POINTS (ABOUT 1/3 CARAT) ALONG WITH 22 EXTROARDINARY FRENCH CUT BAGUETTES (RECTAGULAR), 100%NATURAL, UNENHANCED (NOT HEATED OR GLASS FILLED), FACETED, GENUINE BLUE SAPPHIRES OF IDEAL AND INTENSELY VIBRANTCOLOR.THESE EXQUISITE RICH BLUE COLORED SAPPHIRES MEASURE 4mm BY 1mm (LENGTH & WIDTH) PROVIDING AN ADDITIONAL 62 POINTS (ALMOST 2/3 CARAT)IN GEM WEIGHT. THE WHOLE WATCH CASE IS CRAFTED IN REAL AND SOLID "PLATIN" WHICH IS THE FRENCH WORD FOR "PLATINUM". THE CASE ITSELF MEASURES 14mm WIDE (WITHOUT THE WATCH WINDER) BY 53mm LONG. THE CRYSTAL THAT PROTECTS THE ANTIQUE ART DECO OFF WHITE DIAL WITH BLACK NUMERICAL HOUR MARKERS MEASURES ABOUT 11.5mm SQUARE (LENGTH & WIDTH). THE AMOUNT OF CRAFTSMANSHIP INVOLVED IN CREATING SUCH A SENSATIONAL PATTERN AND THE PHENOMENAL GEM SETTING IS A WONDERFUL INDICATION OF QUALITY. EVEN THE SIDES ARE FINELY HAND ENGRAVED WITH FEATHERED PATTERNS AND EVERY SUPERB DIAMOND & SAPPHIRE IS EXQUISITELY SET INTO THE OPENWORK CHASED GEOMETRICAL INSPIRED TOP. THE ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF LABOR INTENSIVE DETAILING BECOMES QUITE APPARENT WHEN YOU OBSERVE THE EXTENSIVE AMOUNT OF MICRO BEADING THAT SEPARATES THE STRONG ART DECO DESIGNS. ONE OF THE BEST FEATURES OF THIS WRISTWATCH IS THE FULLY ADJUSTABLE MESH BRACELET AND ORNATE CLASP ~ STAMPED 18K. THE BRACELET IS FULLY ADJUSTABLE SO IT CAN BE WORN ON A WRIST AS LARGE AS 7&1/2 INCHES OR AS TINY AS ONE THAT MEASURES 6 INCHES AROUND. THIS BEAUTIFUL 3/8 INCH WIDE BAND IS FITTED WITH AN EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE 1920'S HAND CARVED 18KT GOLD WHITE GOLD CLASP THAT IS EXTRA STURDY AND EXTENSIVELY DECORATED IN ART DECO DESIGNS. MANY OF THESE WATCHES WERE ORIGINALLY SOLD WITH BLACK FABRIC (SILK) BANDS THAT SURVIVED ONLY A YEAR OR TWO IF WORN OFTEN. IT'S A DELIGHTFUL FEATURE TO HAVE THIS WATCH FITTED WITH A BAND THAT IS ALSO OF THE ART DECO ERA. THIS IS SUCH AN APPEALING EXAMPLE OF FRENCH MASTERY. IT WAS THESE UNIQUE ONE OF A KIND HAND CRAFTED PIECES OF ART DECO JEWELRY FROM FRANCE THAT EVOKED AN ENTIRE MOVEMENT IN DESIGN. IT'S BECAUSE OF ASPECTS SUCH AS THESE EXHIBITED SO PERFECTLY IN THIS SENSATIONAL ANTIQUE WATCH THAT EASILY VALIDATES THE GIA (GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF AMERICA) GRADUATE GEMOLOGIST'S APPRAISAL, FOR INSURANCE PURPOSES ONLY, WITH AN ESTIMATED RETAIL REPLACEMENT VALUE OF $12,250.00.REGARDLESS OF ANY APPRAISED VALUE, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW ONE COULD EVER REPLACE SOMETHING SO SELDOM FOUND AND RARE.

JUST offer AS YOU ARE COMFORTABLE AS THIS WILL SELL TO THE HIGH buyer REGARDLESS OF THE FINAL BARGAIN PRICE. SO PLEASE REMEMBER TO ADD THIS OR ANY OF MY OTHER TREASURES YOU HAVE AN INTEREST IN TO YOUR "WISH/WANT" LIST AND IF YOU LOVE MYITEMS AS MUCH AS I DO, PLEASE ADD ME AS A "FAVORITE SELLER". I TRY AND LIST AS MANY NEW (OLD) PIECES AS MY ENERGY AND TIME ALLOWS SO THERE'S ALWAYS ALOT OF GOODIES TO ENJOY EVERY WEEK. THE WATCH WITH MOVEMENTHAS AN IMPRESSIVE WEIGHT OF17 GRAMS. THE CASE AND BAND ARE BOTH IN ANTIQUE CONDITION WITH NO DEEP OR BOTHERSOME SCRATCHES. THE GEMSTONES HAVE NOCHIPS, NO CRACKS AND NOSCRATCHES. THE MOVEMENT IS CLEAN, ORIGINAL AND RUST FREE WITH NO WATER DAMAGE. THE FACE, NUMBERS AND MARKERS ARE ALL INTACT AND ORIGINAL WITH NO REFURBISHING TO THE ORIGINAL FACE (AN IMPORTANT ASPECT TO COLLECTORS OF VINTAGE TIMEPIECES).

PLEASE KNOW THAT HIS GIA CLARITY & COLOR GRADING IS THE MOST STRINGENT OF ANY IN THE INDUSTRY. TYPICALLY "VS" CLARITY DIAMONDS EVALUATED BY EGL OR OTHER INSTITUTIONS WOULD BARELY QUALIFY AS "SI" CLARITY STANDARDS. MY DIAMONDS ARE ALWAYS 100% NATURAL, NEVER HAVE ANY VISIBLE CARBON (BLACK SPOTS), IMPERFECTIONS OR FLAWS (UNLESS INDICATED) AS I NEVER LIKED OR BOUGHT POOR QUALITY DIAMOND JEWELRY AND THEREFORE HAVE NO DESIRE SELLING THEM TO MY CUSTOMERS.
