Here is a very rare bezel wind antique ball pendant watch that is truly amazing from inside and out. Made in the 1870's this pendant watch separates itself from other ball pendant watches for three very special reasons. Firstly it is made in 18 carat gold, while many of these pendant watches were made in silver. However the second and most important difference and feature of this one over so many others, is the absence of a crown to wind it. To wind the movement, one simply rotates it at the centre. This is such a clever and ingenious design of this pendant watch that showcases the quality of the piece even further. To set the time, there is a discreet pin which is on the side, which once pressed and combined with turning the centre of the watch, this will engage and turn the hands to the desired time. With the Swiss made movement having just come back from a full service, it runs well and comes with our twelve month warranty. And finally the third important feature of this, is that this very piece is featured on page 131 of â€śHow the watch was worn: A fashion for 500 yearsâ€ť by Genevieve Cummins making this an even more exciting piece of history that is actually featured in her fantastic book. Measuring 23.8mm across by 31.5mm or 35mm to the top of the bail, this is as exciting as it is extraordinary. Stock# ES9362 Circa: 1870 Sold.
Here is an absolutely stunning vintage green guillochĂ© enamel ball pendant watch that not only looks incredible but is also very practical and useful. Made in the 1930's in sterling silver, the enameling technique applied is called guillochĂ© enamel. This is a precise technique where a fine, intricate pattern is engraved and then once enameled, is polished to a high lustre revealing the wonderful pattern as can be seen here. Able to be easily worn as a pendant around the neck, the vibrant green enamel really stands out so beautifully and the dial is also so easy to read. Measuring 18.2mm across by 23.4mm to the top of the bail, the manual wind movement has been fully serviced, runs perfect and comes with our twelve month warranty. Attached to a lovely long silver chain, this is a piece of jewellery just as much as a timepiece and will always be such a wonderful conversation starter.
