The present 1960s /70s Brooch & Pendant watch can be worn multi-functionally either as a brooch on a lapel of a coat or jacket as well as a pendant watch on a chain.

During this time frame, there was a collection of items which were being commissioned when art became infused with jewelry design in America and fantasy objects amongst the American jewelry houses were creating using objects from the ocean and other subjects for inspiration to create realistically designed pieces of jewelry and timepieces which were multifunctional in purpose . The present piece was similarly produced as part this wave of design which swept across America into the early 60s and mid 70s and is similarly styled to the Tiffany schlumberger designs which were also made for the American market during this same timeframe and iconically drew from the conch shell to produce to a myriad of creations ranging from clocks, earrings and wristwatches.

The case is in excellent condition and the watch has been recently serviced and is signed on the dial by retailer Shreve & Co whom is a prominent retailer during this time frame for unique objects.

Additionally the small watch which is housed in the center of the conch shell where a pearl would normally belong, is free moving, allowing it to swing up for its wearer to see the time with ease when worn either as a brooch or necklace.
Accompanied by gold fill chain for visual presentation purposes*
