Vintage Gucci Sterling & Enameled Tiger Watch
An absolutely stunning sterling silver and enamel Gucci bracelet watch! This vintage piece is most likely from the 1970's and is comprised of a sterling band bangle underside that comes together at 2 silver tiger heads at the top. The tigers are at the tips of a sterling "U" shape that curls around a simple watch. The surface of the entire sterling band and tigers head is detailed with royal blue enameling and represents the stripes of the tigers fur and accents within their faces. The round clock has a sterling case, a navy blue face and grey Roman numeral hour marks. It swivels in the center of the tiger head "U" allowing you to easily wind it and adjust the time. The single silver band is hinged on either side of the watch and clasps on the underside of the band. The enameling has a striking blue color and details the watch and tigers' faces beautifully. The clasp is a secure snap style and is stamped "MOD. BREV", "925", "GUCCI" and "ITALY". The bracelet watch fits snugly on a small to average sized wrist. It looks gorgeous on and would make a perfect addition to any Gucci collection!
Measurements: When clasped, the opening of the bracelet (where your wrist would rest) measures approximately 2 1/8" wide and 1 5/8" tall. The single sterling bangle underside measures a little more than 1/4" wide and 1/4" in depth and the double tiger face at the top of the watch measures 1 1/2" wide, 1 3/8" tall and 1/2" in depth.
Condition: The overall condition of the watch is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no serious damage to the sterling silver band. There is minor surface wear in the enameling which is hardly noticeable when the piece is worn. The hinges and clasp are secure and in good working condition. All watches should be maintained and cleaned periodically and at this time, the watch is in fine working order and keeping good time.
