A lovely old antique watch - such an elegant slice of history.

This Steampunk necklace features a lady's pocket watch, an Elgin 'Lady Raymond' in a gold filled (rolled gold) case. The mechanism has delicate striped engraving known as Fausses Cotés or Geneva Stripes - these give a delightful shimmer in light. The watch was made by the Elgin Watch Co. of USA and the serial number dates the year of production as 1916. The style was very popular at the time because it could be worn on the wrist, as a brooch or on a chain as I have it here.

The case is beautiful, lovely to handle and the reverse side has the original face in place with an intricately engraved border - see photograph 2.

Interestingly, the main cog on this movement will start up and tick back and forth for a few seconds adding an interesting kinetic element to the piece.

The mechanism is mounted with a brass swallow, a traditional symbol of hope, freedom and loyalty and a Swarovski crystal in a brass ring bezel is suspended under the watch case. The crystal is deepest ruby red.

Measurements:
The case - 1.1 inches or 28mm across
Overall length of the focal, from chain to the bottom of the crystal drop - 2.36 inches or 60mm

The chain is a nice quality antiqued brass in a 2 x 2.5mm flat cable link, 840mm long - designed to look great with long line tops and knitwear and long enough to wear over a shirt collar.

This is a unique piece of Steampunk inspired jewellery. It is designed and handmade in New Zealand by Janne Perry of Closetgothic and will be an amazing conversation starter wherever it is worn.
