This extraordinary wearable art piece speaks for itself!
An incredible example of a finely made timepiece can be found here with this stunning solid 18K gold hand enameled ladies Antique Victorian Pocket Watch Case Necklace.
I remarkably came upon this piece while at an estate sale. The watch mechanism had been removed prior to my discovery of this amazing watch.
Unable to restore the watch to it previous state, I was able to give it a new life and repurpose it as the necklace you see before you to be cherished for generations to come.
This Rare Late Victorian antique circa 1880, 18K solid gold Swiss made watch case was completely handmade. The entire body, back and front of the case has been exquisitely decorated with a starburst pattern of guilloche enameling in vibrant colors of Teal and Red accented in Black. Between each diamond frame of enamel is an intricate etched design.
This is an exceptional art piece, the pictures just don't do it justice!
