Additional Information

The white gold version of this unknown ladies model.  Just gorgeous black, red, and green enamel over white 14K gold.  I've always though of this design to look almost Egyptian.  Wasn't this around the time King Tut's treasure was being paraded around NYC?

Unknown... she took me about 10 years to find.

I'm going out on a limb here and saying 'Unknown" :-)

If we haven't an advert yet, chances are we may never. BUT one day...maybe one day....

Howard Carter opened the tomb on 24 November 1922. The last treasures were removed in 1932. 

Still a fabulous example of the best of the enameled watches albeit an Unknown. Well found Jerin!

Given the enamel design, I always related it more to Sylvanus Morley.....😉
