This is an extra-ordinary piece. The clean Modernist design, c .1935, is full of sleek, polished curves, but retains some of the geometry of Art Deco – for more about the Modernist style of the 1930’s, see my blog Modernist Jewelry of the 1930’s..
The beautifully cut citrines pair beautifully with gold. The back-wind watch, a very fine and costly movement, is cleverly hidden in the scroll design. The workmanship is superb. A stunning and elegant jewel. When closed, no-one knows that there is a hidden watch!
