Late Art Deco Platinum Enamel & Diamond Stretch Band Watch
A lovely platinum watch from the late Art Deco (ca1930) era! This watch has a rectangular-shaped watch face which has a wonderful and feminine milgrain design that is encrusted with sparkling diamonds. The clock belly has a white face with painted black numbers and a glass face. The platinum sides of the watch face have an intricate etching with a floral motif and the piece has a stretch band, making it each to slide on and off. Each link of the band is made of platinum and detailed with a lovely simple etched design. Along the center of each platinum link is black enamel and the underside of the platinum watch is stamped "456" and "0", and the underside of each link is stamped "SPEIDEL U.S.A.". The watch would fit well on a small wrist. It's a very special piece that looks simply marvelous on. It would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurement: This rectangular-shaped watch face measures slightly less than 1" tall, slightly more than 1/2" wide and has a depth of a little more than 1/8". When unstretched, the interior diameter of the band measures approximately 2".
Condition: The overall condition of the watch is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum case or enamel and all of the diamonds are intact. Watches of this era should be cleaned and oiled periodically and at this time, the watch is in fine working order and keeping good time.
