The enamel watches of the late teens through the early thirties are simply spectacular. Bulova, Elgin, Waltham — all the major watch houses, along with galaxy of Swiss firms — began vying for control of the ladies wristwatch market. Deco was in, colors and designs were vivid and spectacular and the products of this creative push were pieces such as this brilliant ladies tri-color enamel treasure Bulova.

With its 14k white gold case sporting an enamel bezel of alternating apple-green and black lines interspersed with cherry-red diamonds, this rare expression of Deco prowess captures the attention of anyone lucky enough to get a glimpse of it — especially on the delicate, upturned wrist of a slippered princess. Hold this wrist to your ear and you'll feel the rush of emotion; hear the beating of two hearts: yours, and the ticking heart of this timepiece: an original, completely refreshed, 15 ruby-jeweled classic. Turn it to regard the time and you'll admire an iridescent dial; the carved Victorian wallpaper of its inner chapter flashing as the watch moves in the light, displaying hands as priceless and delicate as those of its wearer.

Measuring approx. 28mm lug to lug and 15mm wide; tucked away in a factory banded green velvet box — marked "Bulova, Fifth Avenue, New York," — this ladies enamel watch is truly as close to the Deco movement as you'll get without bumping into Zelda Fitzgerald.
