1920s platinum and gold Mercier manual wind movement ladies' watch with a mesh bracelet and rectangular case lined with diamond and two square-cut emeralds. The dial is in original condition. While most technology doesn't take kindly to aging, a spectacular timepiece only grows in mystique, prestige, and cultural allure over the years. These sensational vintage styles were handpicked by LA-based Craig Evan Small, one of the first dealers to recognize the enormous potential of vintage jewelry and watches. An expert in retro, Victorian, and Art Deco pieces, he is a member of several top trade organizations, and regularly appears as a watch expert on Antiques Roadshow.
