Elgin Ladies Art Deco Turquoise Enameled Watch Item #2131 Sold

This circa 1930 Ladies Elgin wristwatch in its original Elgin box is the textbook definition of Art Deco! The case features a very attractive geometric design of TURQUOISE enamel inlay in a 14K white gold filled case. It really pops! It has its original dial and fancy blued steel hands. The gold filled case is is beautifully decorated around the edges and surrounding the dial. The white gold gives a stunning contrast against the turquoise enamel for a gorgeous color combination. The matching crown is original and just as elaborate. The case measures 31mm long from lug tip to lug tip, and 17.2mm wide without the crown. A very wearable size, and readable with bold Arabic numerals. Its original glass crystal looks great. The watch features a signed, US-made caliber 488 movement with 7 jewels and manual winding. It comes fully serviced and is running well and keeping good time. For a watch that's close to 90 years old, it shows remarkably little wear. We think she looks great for her age!

To complete the Art Deco look, we paired the watch with a matching period bracelet with geometric links. It will extend to fit between a 6-7.25’’ wrist. Its original gold Elgin box tops it all off!
