Catalog Note
The present example is a beautifully created post world war two 1950/60s Platinum Diamond & Emerald Set Bracelet watch by IWC ( International Watch Company). The timepiece is also accompanied by its original IWC box and comes recently serviced and is in excellent condition. The bezel and dial design concept are elegantly set with approximately 44 brilliant round cut diamonds to allow the piece to appear more as a gemset emerald diamond bracelet moreso than a conventional wristwatch design.

During this timeframe, it was still considered rude to check the time in the company of others and as a result special commissions were ordered to be designed to appear more as bracelet then a conventional wristwatch. Additionally interesting to note is that due to the world wars , platinum was extremely scarce as a result of its use and therefore only reserved by the top firms creations for their most important designs and special client orders.

Aside from the fact that IWC was primarily a men's timepiece firm and only a few examples were produced for the women’s market, the present example designed in platinum makes it an especially unique and interesting example to acquire for ones collection and the additional incorporation and use of emerald cabochons on either side add further to its sophistication as the emerald accents demonstrate the firms’ likely inspiration that they were pulling from the allure of far away exotic lands as they created the design concept. The use of emerald cabochons in such a pyramid manner is typical for middle eastern and asian market designs and combined with the playful gemsetting shapes found at either end where the diamonds are set on the strap to meet the emeralds create an overall sophisticated look on the wrist as well as added comfortability when a mesh bracelet design is applied as the present example is designed with and finished with a jewelry fold locking clasp.

Mesh bracelet concepts are often the designer choice due to their ease of wear and ability to remain suddle so they continue to allow the timepiece to appear as a thin bracelet on the wrist. Overall the present timepiece is an excellent example by one of the most premier houses.
