A fabulous gold, diamond and ruby buckle watch/bracelet from the Retro (ca1940) era! This wide, 3-dimensional looking watch is designed to look like a buckle and is made of 14kt yellow gold. The "strap" of the buckle is portrayed by a wide scale-like mesh band, which carries around the entire length and clasps in the front. The “buckle” itself displays 12 rubies and 7 diamonds, all of which are prong set within a gold starburst setting. An additional larger diamond is bezel set at the center of the buckle. A push button at the end of the buckle releases the cover to reveal a square watch face. The even numbers are painted black and alternate with silver dots and just below the number “12” is the word “JULES”. The watch face can be pulled out from the bottom of the piece so that it can be properly wound. The clasp can be found at the side of the piece and is very unique. A push clasp rests on both the top and bottom of the strap and must be pushed at the same time in order for the “strap” to separate from the “buckle”. It's a gorgeous piece with a strong Retro look and would make a fantastic addition to any collection! When unclasped, the entire watch measures 7” long. The strap measures slightly more than 5/8” wide and is 1/16” thick. The buckle measures 1 1/2" long, slightly more than 3/4" at it’s widest point, and slightly more than 3/8” at its thickest point.
