ANOTHER GREAT WATCH FIND FROM ANTIQUETIMEONLINE. A GORGEOUS AND EXTREMELY RARE CIRCA 1920'S TOP OF THE LINE 16 JEWEL GENUINE TOP QUALITY LADYS PLATINUM DIAMOND WATCH CASE WITH A SOLID 18 CARAT WHITE GOLD BAND. This is an absolutely beautiful and STUNNINGLY understated genuine rectangular hinged back PLATINUM AND DIAMOND set watch case. The case is in lovely original condition with one noticeable ding and some light wear scratches. The case bezel and lugs are set with 80 YES 80!EXCELLENT quality cut diamonds which have lots of fire and brilliance. The watch sparkles fantastically under light!!! I would estimate that there is just over 1.30 carat of diamonds here but this is an estimation as I cannot remove them to weigh and measure them to make sure. The case sides are excellent with a beautiful filigree engraved design down both sides. The front and the rear of the case, snap to very well.
The beautiful solid large extended hinged diamond set lugs are absolutely beautiful. The inside of the case is marked'ALL PLATINUM' and has some watchmakers service initials and numerals. The case measures 1.1cms (11mm) in width excluding the crown and 9cms (90mm) in length including the diamond studded lugs. This is a wonderful entirely original unrestored white dial.
It is in excellent condition and looks beautiful. The dial has lovely gold baton numerals with Arabic quarters.
The black steel hands are in excellent condition. The crystal is made from glass, seems original to the piece and is in great condition just showing light normal wear marks. This is a wonderful clean genuine high grade quality 16 jewel movement.
It is engraved with the wording 16 jewels and Swiss made and'Tosarn' in a beautiful typesetting. The mainspring barrel is mark'HLP' On researching this movement it could be by Buren.
This fantastic movement is in excellent working order, and is running well. This movement has been fully serviced and timed by my watchmaker. I have timed it over 24 hours and keeps good time to within a few mins per day. Please dont expect quartz accuracy from a nearly 100 year old watch!!All in all this is a beautiful top quality original movement. This beautiful diamond watch is fitted with a beautiful solid 18 carat white gold slightly sprung band. It is marked for 18 carat gold on the box clasp.
It also still has its original safety clasp and safety chain. The band/clasp are in working order. I estimate that the watch will fit up to a 7 inch wrist. THIS IS A FANTASTIC ORIGINAL AND EXTREMELY RARE PLATINUM DIAMOND WRISTWATCH IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.
