At this time, many watch manufacturers were producing special order timepieces with concealed covers to mask the fact that they were in fact timepieces. When attending social events, it was considered rude to appear to be checking the time in the company of one's guests and as a result many of the manufacturers and leading design jewelry firms attempted to create the most beautful bracelet watches which were high fashion and could disguise the time as a dual purpose bracelet and watch.
The present example is a superb example from this period made by one of the leading design firms at this time.
The watch is designed with two diagonally placed Diamond Daisy wristwatches created with (8) Pear Shaped cut marquis diamonds as leaves and accented with (10) brilliant round cut diamonds and (12) Emerald Baguettes cut Diamond vines. The approximate diamond weight is about 5 carats of VS1, F color stones
The bracelet is totally unworn with a unique double locking system which is extremely well made a beautiful all shiny textured platinum bracelet straps which are firm and delicately designed. The Hinged cover is firm as well and with sharp hallmarks throughout. This indicates that it is has been extremely well preserved and looks virtually brand new.
