Gruen Gold Filled Art Deco Octagon Shaped Watch with Dial by Stern from 1928
Located in Long Beach, CA

Gruen had its American base in Cincinnati Ohio but was originally a Swiss House. Our Family Store in Los Angeles California became a Gruen store after a dispute we had with Hamilton Watch Company in the early 1930's. The watch is fitted with an original Sterling Silver Dial by the renowned house of Stern Freres. Stern was the most important Dial Maker in Switzerland and in the early in 1930's they purchased the Patek Philippe Watch Company out of bankruptcy. The Stern Family still owns the Patek Philippe Watch Company today. We have just given this watch a factory quality service by our finest watchmaker and it keeps dependable time as well. While the original is in new condition, it is too fragile to actually wear so we have installed a new Lizard Strap and the original period buckle. You will likely not see another vintage Gruen in this fine condition that can be worn all the time. Founded in 1894 by Dietrich Gruen. The company had their American base in Cincinnati, Ohio, and it produced a wide variety of watches, including pocket watches, wristwatches, and chronographs. Gruen watches were known for their high quality and stylish designs, and they were popular with consumers for many years. In the 1920s, Gruen was one of the largest watch manufacturers in the United States. The company employed over 1,500 people and produced over 1 million...

Ollendorff 56 Diamonds 2.0cttw Platinum Art Deco Ladies Wristwatch Circa 1920s
Located in North Attleboro, MA
This is a WOW, WOW... WOW!!! Absolutely stunning Art Deco platinum and diamond Swiss-made, spring-wound wristwatch by Ollendorff circa the late 1920s! It's not just a timepiece, it's a gorgeous, luxurious and hand-crafted piece of historical fine jewelry. 56 diamonds, 2.0cttw. With its tiered rows of 16 round-cut glittering diamonds reaching from either side of the platinum case to the lugs, the design was likely inspired by the iconic terraced crown of the Chrysler Building in New York City. If the diamond and platinum case weren't luxe enough, the original watch band is comprised of two buckles set with 10 diamonds, leading to 30 chevron-shaped platinum links with milgrain detailing, each set with their own diamond as well! The watch has a total of 56 diamonds for approximately 2.0cttw. This watch is a sparkling show-stopper, a rare piece. Total length of 6.75 inches; suggested maximum wrist circumference is 6.5" for a comfortable fit. Links could be removed by your local jeweler if you prefer a smaller circumference. * Swiss movement * Model number 10456 * Seventeen jewels. The watch is fully jeweled, meaning that the watch uses jewels (in this case rubies) as bearings in the inner mechanical movement from the balance wheel all the way to the center wheel pivot. * Inside of caseback marked .900 PLAT .100 IRID The watch was serviced by a master watch craftsman in 2016. Runs and keeps time; please note future performance cannot be guaranteed due to the age of the piece. Free of monograms or inscriptions - the perfect clean canvas for your own personal gift message! The Ollendorff Watch Company was founded in 1868 by Isador Ollendorff. The company imported watches from Switzerland and was run by the family in New York City until it was sold to the Gotham Watch...

Antique, New and Vintage Watches

Records show that, in Europe, by the 16th century, it was high time for portable clock devices. Right now, perhaps you’re shopping for your own. If so, find a vast range of fashionable and functional antique, new and classic vintage watches on 1stDibs.

While wall-mounted time tellers and grandfather clocks were much more convenient than the sundials of ancient history, watches were becoming crucial for an increasingly connected society whose members learned that the latest advancements in technology meant they could carry devices that kept time to within a minute a day. Tragically, the first pocket watches — albeit an improvement on the accessories that preceded them, which dangled from a chain worn around the neck — didn’t help much as far as accuracy or portability. Focused on style over substance, the upper class frequently carried lavish pieces that ran hours behind. 

Eventually, watches migrated from owners’ pockets to their wrists. In the early days of watchmaking, watches were fragile enough that they necessitated protection from the elements. Now, wristwatches made of gold and steel can withstand the harshest climates — even 100 meters underwater, in the case of Rolex’s Submariner. Designer Gérald Genta, whose range of clients included Rolex, created for Audemars Piguet the first luxury sports timepiece to be made from stainless steel. First introduced in 1972, the Royal Oak was a perfect choice for blending the form and function that are now synonymous with sports watches.

Indeed, although exceedingly practical, the watches of today are far from bland. Bulgari’s iconic Serpenti watch was on everyone’s list after the collection’s bold bracelet, which technically debuted after the timepiece, graced the wrist of actress Elizabeth Taylor. If anything, elaborately crafted timepieces — the unmistakably boxy silhouette of Cartier Tank watches, the elegant and minimal Calatrava designed by legendary Swiss house Patek Philippe — are even more effective than the shape we associate with traditional watches. You’ll always know what time it is because you won’t be able to tear your eyes away from your new accessory. 

Form watches — the all-encompassing moniker bestowed upon non-round watches — are making headlines and completing contemporary fashionable ensembles the world over. At the same time, both casual fans and careful collectors are drawn to the unbeatable charm of vintage styles, such as the icons designed by Omega that even James Bond can’t resist

When shopping for a watch, it’s good to keep your needs as well as your specific personal style in mind: A smaller, subtle timepiece is a good fit for small wrists. When will you be wearing your new accessory? There’s a versatile model out there for everyday wear, while a rugged, feature-heavy watch is a safe bet if you’re prone to embarking on all-weather activities in the great outdoors. 

Find exactly what you’re looking for in an unparalleled collection of antique, new and vintage watches on 1stDibs — we promise it will be worth your time.
