ABOUT THIS WATCH

An exemplary and absolutely stunning Art Deco dress watch, beautifully handcrafted in platinum, circa 1930s. Three rows of sparkling, icy white collet-set diamonds, punctuated by geometric calibre ruby and diamond links, culminate in a rectangular timepiece bordered by matching electric red rubies and embellished north and south by square and baguette diamonds. The dial reads 'Grogan', a vanished retailer of yesteryear. The 17-jewel movement is by the renowned Swiss watchmaker C.H. Meylon, provider of high-quality timepieces to Tiffany, among others. A truly superb Art Deco jewel. 7.50 carats total diamond weight.

About Vintage Jewelry

Like fine wine, fine jewelry also has a “vintage”—the design period or era from which it hails. Victorian or Edwardian, Art Deco or Retro, each piece in our collection has its own special pedigree. But just because one era ended and another began, it doesn’t mean that creative jewelry makers simply forgot the lessons of the past! Many of the jewels in our cases refuse to conform to a single design period, either by striking out on their own or showing the transition from one era to the next. When such daring dazzlers are over one hundred years old, they’re generally grouped in the antique category. Anything younger than that, but still made before 1970, fits the vintage label. Every iconic era yields both singular and transitional pieces, like the ones we’ve assembled here. Follow the link at the end of each section for more about the aesthetics and history of the period.

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.
