SOLD - Stunning Antique Gallet 1800's Ladies Pendant in Sterling Silver High End
Ladies open face pendant style pocket watches are so cool because you can wear them as a necklace to accessorize a vintage style. There are many other ways that women wore these watches as well. This particular Lady Racine also signed JG (Jules Gallet) is a high end swiss watch with a gold gilt movement. Jules Gallet, was a very prolific manufacturer in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The hyperlink will tell you all about this great Swiss watch company. Racine was one of several trademarks used by his companies. The movement appears to be in-house (meaning made entirely by the manufacturer). The case is signed and properly hallmarked. The piece has amazing engraving and appears to had never been polished. It looks great! A perfect affordable gift for your loved one or for yourself. Just serviced and working well, keeping good time. The watch is stem wound and pin set. Very easy to use. The hinges to all the covers are in great shape and everything snaps tightly. The dial makes very good use of colors and victorian design. The porcelain dial is in great shape with only a slight hairline around 9-11; the camera picks it up well, but its not noticable by the naked eye while looking at it from a normal distance, you would really need to be examining the dial to see it. I hope this amazing piece is found by someone who loves it; this is the type of quality (with proper care) that can last generations as it already has. All of this at a very affordable price.
