French Art Deco Diamond and Platinum Cocktail Wristwatch, Circa 1930
A late Art Deco, diamond and platinum cocktail watch, set with approximately 10.00ct of old-cut diamonds. The dial is rectangular and is painted with black, Art Deco style, Arabic numerals, on a silvered dial, with blue steel hands, with a curved crystal. The millegrain edged surround is set with old-cut diamonds, in grain settings. The bracelet is set with old-cut diamonds, in an articulated, openwork, millgrain edged, Art Deco mount, in platinum. The winding crown is set with diamonds on the top and around the sides. Circa 1935.
The back of the case is marked with two, French, dogs' head marks, for platinum, the inside of the case has two service marks: ABC 2/05 and 1A22661. The watch has a box clasp, the tongue of which is marked with a later French eagle owl mark for imported 18ct gold, meaning the watch had been imported back to France at a later date. Clasp tongues are usually made out of 18ct gold as the metal is more springy than platinum. The movement is Swiss, by the Driva Watch Co., with seventeen jewels.
