LIFETIME SERVICE COMMITMENT This high grade and rare watch was produced by the iconic old house of Agassiz for the legendary American jewelry company of Black Starr & Frost. I was probably done in the early to mid 1920s and is entirely hand constructed. The case is uniquely constructed with a screw back. The dial is produced in Sterling Silver with the numerals being engraved out and filled with enamel powder and fired in place in a furnace at 1500 degrees fahrenheit. The dial was produced for Agassiz by the Stern family, who, just a few years later saved the Patek Philippe Watch Company from bankruptcy. Stern still owns Patek Philippe today. This is a unique hand made watch which can be worn for all types of occasions was designed to curve on the wrist and it is versatile in style. Most impressively though, this watch is nearly 100 years old and can still be worn all the time and counted on to get you there on time.
