This is a very charming antique pocket watch key that can not only be used to wind a pocket watch, but can so easily be worn as a pendant or attached to a bracelet on its own or with others to create a very special and unique charm bracelet.
Made in the 1870â€™s, it is made from rolled gold where the gold is rolled and bonded to the metal shape making it hard and durable to wind the pocket watch, all the while having the gold on the outside to give it such a lustrous finish. On one side there is an enamel cross and border in a lovely soft powder blue colour that is highlighted by a hand engraved background, and the other side is just as beautiful with its own hand engraved pattern. And then to make this even more special, it opens to reveal a secret locket compartment inside. This really is such an incredible piece that is even more wonderful when you consider that it was made over 150 years ago and is as exciting today as when it was made.
Measuring 35mm in length by 12.7mm wide at the centre, no matter how this is used or worn, there is little doubt that it will always remain such a wonderful conversation starter.
