ABOUT THIS WATCH

An especially chic French early-Art Deco watch - the eagle mark on the case tells us it was made before 1912 - beautifully hand-fabricated in platinum. The Swiss Glycine dial is framed in glittering diamonds and royal blue calibre sapphires, flanked by very stylish and iconically Deco geometric stirrups. We suspect the watch was originally worn on a black silk ribbon, the style of the day, then updated in the roaring twenties with the new style of the day, a supple platinum mesh bracelet finished with a bejeweled clasp, a synthetic sapphire framed in diamonds. A most superb and seductive timepiece. For a petite wrist, measures 6 1/2 inches long, 13/16 inch wide at widest point.

About Art Deco Jewelry

Sleek and modern, Art Deco design brought jewelry into the machine age. Yet these stylish pieces still found room for the fine forms and lines of previous eras within their elegant architecture. In particular, we see many peaceful co-habitations of Edwardian and Art Deco styles together.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
