Rare Vintage Cresarrow 14ct Gold, Diamond And Ruby Watch - Tiffany & Co:
Rare Vintage Cresarrow 14ct Gold Diamond Ruby Watch
The face of the watch is white and reads " CRESARROW ". Selected numbers on the watch face are made with 14ct gold studs. The watch is in good working order. The strap and casing are crafted from 14ct gold. Surrounding the watch case it is finished with eight diamonds (tested ) and two red coloured stones which I imagine will be rubies or garnets. The watch movement is stamped " CRESARROW WATCH CO SEVENTEEN 17 JEWELS UNADJUSTED SWISS ". The face of the watch could do with a clean but the overall condition of the watch is very good.
The Cresarrow Watch Co, of 19 Liberty St, Newark, New Jersey first used the word "Cresarrow" in 1912 according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. This is the same address as Whiteside and Blank (given as both 17 and 19 Liberty St.) although I do not know whether it had similar ownership or was a subsidiary.
In 1912 Henry Blank journeyed to Europe to conduct the customary dealings with watch movement manufacturers in Switzerland and stone dealers in Paris, Belgium and Amsterdam. Henry Blank returned on the Titanic and survived the sinking. Newton Whiteside left the business in 1917 and the firm became Henry Blank & Co. Henry Blank & Co supplied jewellery to such firms as Raymond Yard; Shreve, Crump and Low; Black, Starr and Frost; Oscar Heyman & Co; Grant A. Peacock; Neiman Marcus; and Tiffany & Co., as well as selling there own line of jewelry through retailers across the United States. Quite often the jewelry supplied to specialist retailers did not carry the firms trademark.
Watch length approx 18.5cms long
Watch face approx 1.1cms diameter
