WNS-ATQ-1001 - Waltham 17J - Square Art Deco - circa 1930s - Front Case View

Description/Comments: An absolutely classic Art Deco ornately designed  Ladies wristwatch that features a square case with a round bezel and dial (circa 1920) . Not too many of these are around anymore (this is the only one of this type I have ever seen - a true affordable collectors piece.)

Case: The square shaped case measures 30.5 mm. The bezel has a fancy engraved pattern. The case flips up and has a storage space for pictures. There are wire fringes attached to the top of the case.

Dial: The dial is all original with a white color background. The hour and minute hands are fancy and resemble the Fuseaux-style and are all black in color. The hour markers are Roman numeral style and black in color. Signed Waltham and 17 Jewels.

Band: An original Art Deco era 30 mm wide metal mesh (Whiting and Davis Company).

Movement: Very clean mechanical wind signed ‘W’ and Seventeen Jewels. (Running order.)
