      To have a very fabulous crab brooch is one thing but a watch also?! That's so unusual!
      I adore the lovely blue stone in him and the stones studding his shell give him an extra encrusted look! Very fitting with this time of year with visiting beaches etc.

      Very grateful for the love everyone

      Isn't this an ultra cool piece Phil, such a great idea from KJL who was so innovative in costume jewelry. The watch has a pretty pearl face and is a wind-up that actually still works 60+ years later! Fabulous praise thank you so much

      Scott I feel this is a pretty outstanding design myself, thank you for your delightful compliment :) Besides the creatively hidden watch, the crab design is very realistic and well thought out. The spring opening the watch face is very tight, as you can see I had to open it with a pair of tiny scissors for the photo

      Thank you Mani for your lovely comment, I love this crabbikins too he's so stylish with the deep blue cabochon on its shell. And yes, it's totally convenient to pin it on, then flip the top up to tell the time, an excellent invention

      Really appreciate your super comment about this watch-brooch kivatinitz, thank you so much! Agreed it is a most interesting design, a dressy crab jewel that would make a terrific gift for someone whose sign is Cancer the crab, I must remember that!

      I'm with you Lauren, I love the combination here, a gorgeous crab with a hidden surprise! It is a very good summertime piece, I think I have seafood on my mind with the upcoming July 4th celebrations. Stay tuned my lioness friend, I found a really nice fellow to honor your sign which I will post end of next mo & hope you'll enjoy :) Thank you for your marvelous comment as ever you're so insightful

      Bill thank you so much for your awesome comment & I really love your ladybug trinket box, thanks too for your very kind words for me in the post. The crawling creature season is here!!
