1.12ct Ruby and 1.01ct Diamond, 18ct Yellow Gold Watch - Art Deco - Vintage Circa 1940


This stunning, fine and impressive yellow gold cocktail watch has been crafted in 18ct yellow gold with platinum settings.

The asymmetrical, iconic geometric Art Deco design has a rectangular gold watch face, displaying the maker's mark 'ANCRE' and '17 JEWELS', in addition to black Arabic numerals 3, 6, 9 and 12, within a minute marked, rectangular chapter ring.

The watch face is surrounded by a rectangular, rounded edge platinum frame, embellished with twenty-five pavé set eight-cut diamonds.

The winder is plain and unembellished.

The asymmetric lobed 18ct yellow gold lugs to either side are ornamented with fifteen channel set square step cut rubies and one platinum collet set baguette cut diamond.

This ladies 1940's wristwatch is fitted with a fully articulated, double stranded, snake style bracelet which secures to the reverse with a versatile adjustable, flip clasp and benefits from the additional security of a fine link safety chain.

The snake style bracelet suspends from the lugs via two platinum set rectangular loved links, each accented with two platinum pavé set eight-cut diamonds.

The watch is fitted with a Swiss 15 jewels manual wind movement; as often can be the case with such vintage mechanical watch mechanisms it is not in working order.

This stunning Art Deco ladies watch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 18ct gold and platinum.

This vintage watch is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.

Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.
