Absolutely breathtaking vintage lapel watch. This was purchased from a collector of lapel watches. It measures 1 1/4 inches wide by 2 1/4 inches in length including the fringe. Its depth is about 3/4 inch thick. The metal appears to be goldtone, could not find any marks for the metal. But it is a very rich gold color. The back is flat except for the pinback and there are a couple of pinmarks to the back, not real noticeable, no wear to the metal anywhere that I could find. The fringe is in great condition. The front has a lock and hinge and opens up to reveal a beautiful 17jewel Seeland swiss watch with gold hands and numbers. It also has a seconds dial at the bottom of the face with gold hands also. I had this watch cleaned, and overhauled and I personally guarantee it for 1 year from the date it is purchased. It is a wind-up of course. When its opened it faces you as you are wearing it. After you close it and lock it, all you see is a beautiful filigree brooch with leaves and scrollwork and etching. Also 12 prong set rhinestones encircling a center rhinestone. There is even granulation (little balls of gold metal) around the base of the settings.. Hinge, lock, and pinback work fine. The whole piece is in pristine condition. Looks like it was made for the Queen. True decadence at its best!
