WALTHAM Art Deco Huge 14kt Etched Pocket Watch Pendant
A wonderful Waltham pocket watch from the Art Deco (ca1930) era! Made of 14kt white gold, this heavy self-winding watch is very large in size has a gorgeous etched surface on both sides with an intricate, swirled texture. One side of the octagonal-shaped piece displays the white watch face covered in crystal, which has large gold numbers and is signed "WALTHAM" in the center. Bordering the round watch face are white gold edges engraved with flowing detail. The opposite side of the watch reveals an aesthetic movement design that covers the entire white gold surface, featuring a bird in flight at the center, and a swirled floral border around the top and sides. A seam runs all along the outside edge of the piece, and at the top is a hinged handle and textured winder. A magnificent Art Deco piece, it would make a wonderful addition for the collector of old timepieces, or would look lovely worn as a statement pendant on a chain!
Measurements: The pocket watch measures 2" tall, is 1 5/8" wide, and nearly 1/2" thick. The round watch face has a 1 1/2" diameter. The pennyweight of the entire piece (including the watch inside) is 39.0dwt.
Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the white gold setting or crystal covering the watch face. The handle and winder are both intact.
