Rare antique diamond and enamel ring watch made in the 1870's


Every once in a while you come across something that is not only so exquisitely beautiful from every angle that you look at it, but unlike anything else out there.

Not only is this antique ring watch so exceedingly rare, but it is incredibly beautiful and it was so well made to such an incredibly high standard and is a true testament to the quality of the jewellers and watchmaker that made this over 150 years ago, that it is not only in superb condition but still running today.

Made in 18 carat yellow gold in the 1870's, the white enamel dial is all original and in pristine condition. As clean today as when it was made, it was made with black numbers except for the 12 which is in red. With its original hands, the dial is surrounded by twenty eight rose cut diamonds, and the border of diamonds measures 15mm in diameter.

With the dial set into the gorgeous lozenge shape top which itself measures 16.6mm across by 25.2mm, the top has been beautifully enamelled in a rich cobalt blue colour that has long been associated with royalty. Even the enamel is in superb condition and each end is set with a further three rose cut diamonds.  The diamonds plus the ones around the dial come together to total 0.19 carats and add a delightful amount of sparkle to the ring.

Even the side of the top section is so exquisite to admire with the intricate and fine hand engraving, as is the remarkable band that it is sitting on with the split designed shoulders with more hand engraving running down.

And looking under the top section, there is a very discreet plate that can be slid open revealing two key holes. The one in the centre will set the time and the other will wind the cylinder escapement movement that has been painstakingly restored over several months and is now in full working order.

From every single angle that you look at this ring watch it will take your breath away and once gone, it is unlikely that you will ever see another let alone one a stunningly beautiful as this.
