If you look at movie studio stills from the Golden Age of Hollywood; you know, the black and white photographs of the "Titans" of film, chances are they’ll be holding a martini or smoking a cigarette or checking their watch as if they're about to catch a train. Whatever their activity, if you look CLOSELY at their wrist, they’ll be wearing a great looking timepiece.

This was an era of such staggering class it will never, ever be fully appreciated, much less duplicated. The same thing can be said for the watches produced during this era of style and function. Sadly, no matter how much money you spend on a modern watch, you won’t be able to duplicate the styling, shape or coloring of the old classic timepieces. New watches are like remakes of classic films: They're never as good as the original.

Take, for instance, this ladies Deco cocktail watch in solid 9k gold stepped or "Aztec" case. Measuring 34mm lug-to-lug by 15mm wide, its solid gold case has a fluid style, featuring exceedingly attractive hinged "stepped" lugs and distinct Deco design. Imperially slim, plum-blued hands gesture to an ice-cream dial sporting gold Arabic markers. Its hinged back opens to reveal its original 15 jewel Swiss movement, carefully cleaned, oiled and calibrated to keep time as it was intended.

As stunning today as it was nearly a century ago, this timepiece is destined for the wrist of someone wonderful!

We're pleased to offer the watch in a period presentation box.
