    Sometimes we can see wonderful yet very creative ways in which watchmakers turn the standard watch into something beautiful and playful. These pieces are truly works of art, combining the technical expertise of the watchmaker with the delicate beauty of the enameller's craft. The form-watch transcends watch collecting to the world of masterful and decorative art.

    The present fantasy watch is in extremely well preserved condition with hardly any restoration to the cherries. The watch sits inside the largest cherry in the center, and can be visible when the end of the crest is pushed.
