The winder can be found at one side, in between a double row of silver lines and the watch fob hangs from a decorative silver leaf bail, hanging from a complimentary chain and forming a fabulous necklace. The chain is comprised of sections of delicate silver chain that alternate with red enamel ellipse shaped links. The chain fastens in the back with a simple spring ring clasp.

Condition: The overall condition of the watch fob and chain is excellent. Besides minimal normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver setting or red enamel. The clasp is secure and in good working condition. 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.
