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.

Frequently asked questions about AuldBaubles

Vintage/Antique baby/children's jewelry almost certainly does not meet metals safety standards for youngsters of today. Therefore I can only sell it for adult use.

I cannot guarantee sterility of earring posts/hooks/wires (and/or other pieces where this may be an issue). Please purchase and use at your own risk.

May try to sell you work your ring doesn't need! Be on your guard, refer to Item Details for info re: prongs and bands.

Colors may display inaccurately on screens.
RING SIZES are approximate, due to jewelers' ring sizing mandrels not being completely standardized.

STONE SIZES are necessarily estimates, because in most cases, I cannot measure the depth of a stone due to its being in a setting. I measure the diameter (or length and width) of a stone with digital calipers, and estimate its carat weight from its span.

BANGLE SIZE: Please note the inner diameter for the bangle. I suggest you cut out a mock-up on sturdy cardboard to see how it will fit you before ordering.
The outer packaging is discreet, nobody will know there is jewelry inside.

I do not use my shop name on the return address; this is for the item's safety in transit and for privacy on arrival, as jewelry items are often bought as gifts.

Pieces are sent in small carton boxes tied with rustic string, or cushioned inside handmade wrapping paper gift bags.
