  • Catalogue Essay

    This bracelet watch, formerly from Baron Eugene de Rothschild's daughter, Countess Adelaide Janina Zamoyska collection, is fitted with round-cut and baguette-cut diamonds to the bezel and articulated lugs. Each end of the case, the diamonds would appear to form a crown, further enhancing the look of this bracelet watch, which is manufactured to a very high quality and standard.

    The bracelet is comprised of original seed pearls, which are intact despite the age of the watch. While the case and bracelet was manufactured by Van Cleef & Arpels, the movement was made by Vacheron & Constantin, which is typical of the period. Furthermore, the present is in very appealing and original condition. This setting is complete throughout and the watch has a very art-deco look, which further enhances its rarity.
