the Vintage Watch & A Pitch

Monday, February 10th, 2014

The company established its name by serving royalty and celebrities. But that began to change. By the early 1900s, the company had branches in London and New York. Each shop was staffed by its own designers and jewelry makers. In London, especially, expert jewelry-making skills were handed down from generation to generation. To this day, fathers and sons are still working side by side. Early model often had the word Paris underneath the brand name, and a flower rosette in the center of the dial. Very nice details that were only seen on early pieces.

This pocket watch also comes with its original papers and box, which also show the same pride and skill in their aesthetics and design as the watch itself. The box is cushioned with red velvet to protect this mint condition piece. A ring of gold medals won by the watch masters at Patek Philippe, framing the piece as it sits on its throne. With this particular brand new interpretation from the acclaimed Container collection, the actual Maison Parisienne seems to have taken a step ahead within creativeness, granting true dandies all over the world the chance in order to revamp their own wrists with a genuinely timeless piece.

At the next booth, Larengregor SA, I spotted a few rarities including a fantastic Hemmerle brooch and some Art Deco beauties as well. The endless signed jewels at J S Fearnley booth were quite mesmerizing, however I found that this particularly antique brooch caught my eye with its crystal clear old mine Colombian emerald. Sadly, I can’t recall the booth where I saw the following Machine Age bracelets, but they were some of the coolest finds at the show!

The Citizen watch is, by certain standards, the most popular time piece in the world today. But Citizen wasn’t always Citizen. Long before that it was the Shokasha Watch Research Institute, which took shape in 1918. Analog watches are simply watches with moving hands. A digital watch is a watch with a small LED or LCD screen that displays the time in a digital format. Analog watches are considered to be somewhat more elegant and dressy, as well as traditional.
