One of my favorites, I wear this all the time. This antique Art Nouveau pocket watch is Swiss made turn of the century circa 1908. The sterling silver case has highly ornate engraving and repousse design with an insect and leaves. The watch pin brooch is sterling silver and bronze. It has a large hook on the back from which to hold the watch, although it can also be worn by itself. The whole rig is pretty showy on a lapel. You can also wear the brooch by itself (without the watch) hung upside down from a chain as a pendant. The inside of the watch is hand engrave in beautiful cursive lettering with the date 1908. It is stem wound and pin set. This means that you would hold in the tiny pin at the very top of the watch and turning the hands from the winding crown in order to set the time.
