This masterfully crafted Swiss gold lapel watch is an exemplary specimen of Swiss workmanship. Taking the form of an exotic scarab, the enchanting timepiece is formed of meticulously worked 18K gold with exquisite guilloché enameling. A simple press of a button causes the mechanism to engage and the cerulean blue wings to lift, revealing the diminutive watch face with Arabic numerals. A work of art in and of itself, this extraordinary beetle is suspended from a stunning dragon pin, while diamonds, rubies, and a natural pearl lend further luxury to the elegant timepiece. Stunning in its artistry and craftsmanship, this watch flawlessly reflects the exotic beauty and naturalist aesthetics that define the Art Nouveau style.
