The watch faces date from the early to mid-1900s. They've been coated with a layer of clear varnish to protect them. Some of the watches still have the original watch hands!
The clip measures roughly 3 and 1/4" long by just under 1" tall. The silver French clip on the back is about 2 and 1/2" long.
Please note: the photo of the BACK of the hair clip is just an example photo to show you what the clip looks like, that's not a photo of this exact hair clip.
There is a danger of radium (a radioactive material) in some vintage watch parts. I want to assure you that I have tested all of my materials with a Geiger counter, and all of them are NON-radioactive and safe, so you can feel secure buying Velvet Mechanism creations.
The hair clip comes in a nice black gift box, and will be shipped by USPS Priority Mail with Tracking / Delivery Confirmation in the US, or First Class Air Mail for international purchases (contact me if you're interested in upgrading to faster Priority International Shipping).
