No one can deny the honesty of Arts and Crafts or the inventiveness and sexy bravado of the Deco era; however, when it comes to out-and-out panache it is hard to beat the brilliance of the Victorian era. Florishes, scrollwork, a love of classicism and flair — all are endearing characteristics of the Heroic Era. Every aspect of Victorian art; from its obsession to detail and workmanship to its affair with all things Rococo — define it as a triumph for its nameless, forgotten artists.

Draped in florid chase-work, this solid 20k white gold masterpiece is, without question, one of the most beautiful Art Nouveau timepieces we've had the pleasure to offer. Four sapphire-cut stones mark the corners of the bezel along with elegant illustration along either side.

Heavily stylized Doric numerals surround poppy carvings in the inner chapter of the dial. Completing this tasteful work is a crown highlighted by a cabochon sapphire.

We are happy to fit the timepiece with a historically correct black ribbon band, if one wishes.

Of course we've taken the liberty of completely cleaning, oiling and calibrating this 26mm by 14mm solid gold work of wrist art so that it keeps time as it was originally intended.

You're here because you're unique; because you can and will have the best. You recognize the panache of fine timepieces and love the statement they make about the wearer. This timepiece is worthy of you.
