Note: NON-WORKING condition, for spares/repairs/wear as a bracelet! I'd be asking $90 for it if it was in running condition.

This lovely old watch dates to the mid-late 1940s. It's not perfect, but I couldn't resist it, because it's much nicer than most of them I've seen.

The watch case and band are 10K yellow gold plated. The plating is in very nice condition with not much wear at all! The back is stainless steel.

The band has a few stretched-out links. This makes it more comfortable to wear (imho), and it's not obvious when the watch is being worn.

The dear old thing doesn't work. You can pull out the knob and set the gleaming hands to a time that's personally significant for you, perhaps, but the watch doesn't run. I don't know if it can be fixed. the old mechanism is present. Perhaps it could be replaced and you'd have a gorgeous vintage watch...!

So as a pretty vintage bracelet to go with your retro dresses, this old watch works well (we all use our mobile phones to check the time anyhow, don't we?). It's got an ornate late Art-Deco face, and the band has rhinestones that go all the way around it. None are missing, and they're all nicely sparkly.

I have also seen these pretty watches converted to locket-like bracelets... the watch mechanism is removed, and the case filled with little treasures. I've seen one with lace and a tiny doll inside, and others with loose faceted stones and charms tumbling inside. Lots of possibilities here!

The watch's head measures 1 1/8 inches long by 3/4 inch wide. The bracelet's opening is 2 1/2 inches diameter at its narrowest, and stretches out another inch. This was hard to measure, though, so that's approximate. The band is about 4mm wide.
