ABOUT THIS WATCH

An exquisite, original, early-Art Deco platinum and diamond bracelet watch - circa 1920 - by America's foremost jeweler of yesteryear - Tiffany & Company. The hexagonal dial is inset into a circular case, glittering all around with small Swiss-cut diamonds, embraced on each side by tapered diamond-set sections leading to an expandable platinum band. Every millimeter of this stunning and extraordinary jewel (and timepiece) is meticulously ornamented with hand engraved and millegrain details. The high grade Swiss movement is by Meylan Watch Company, Tiffany's most prominent watchmaker of the period. 6 3/4 inches plus a little stretch. N.B. We highly recommend that vintage dress watches be reserved for special occasions. Unlike your cell phone (the most reliable time keeper!), the movements are quite fussy.

About Edwardian Jewelry

Edwardians took the dark beauty of Victorian jewelry and dyed it platinum blonde. Light and airy filigree, worked with intricate millegrain and detailed designs in that durable metal, was liberally set with the “white” stones—pearls and diamonds chief among them. The Victorians’ sense of whimsy and beloved yellow gold didn’t disappear completely, though, even as the Edwardian era made way for the further-streamlined Art Deco.

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.
