ABOUT THIS WATCH

A fabulous timepiece from the 1940's exhibiting the design influences that were characteristic of the Retro era. The distinctive asymmetrical lines in this piece were a reflection of those seen in architecture, clothing and furniture while the harmony between rose gold and rubies was created because of the shortage of platinum during World War ll. The watch is rendered in 14 karat rose gold, incorporating diamond set platinum accents and baguette cut rubies, and houses a 17 jewel manual wind movement by Croton. The stylized, knife edge bar link bracelet uniquely attaches by a disguised clasp. Retro for the metro!

About Retro Jewelry

Hollywood glam got creative during the war era, when strategic factors forced jewelers to do without certain materials. Rather than scale back, they took the streamlined shapes of the Art Deco and went big, bold, and gold with them! Retro power pieces segued from the Jazz Age to the Fabulous Fifties, creating many motifs of vintage jewelry along the way.

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.
