Vintage Lidher 18K Yellow Gold and Enamel Bow Watch Brooch Pin - 17 Jewels - Incabloc - Swiss Made - 10.0 Grams - Runs #d436

Regular price $875.00
This wonderful Swiss-made watch brooch was created by the Lidher Watch Co. I could not find much information on the Lidher company and am dating the watch to the late 1940s to 1950s based on its style and mechanical movement. The watch and brooch are comprised of fine 18K yellow gold and enamel. The brooch portion of the piece has the shape of a pretty tied bow with a green enamel finish and gold floral accents. The brooch has a hook at the bottom that holds a Lidher watch beneath. It is also finished in green enamel with gold accents around the watch dial and on the back of the case. The watch hangs sideways from the brooch on a lovely, harp-shaped, attached bail and swivels freely so it can be worn with the watch or the enameled back in the front as desired. The watch has 17 jewels and the watch dial is white with gold arabic numerals and stick hour indices and gold hands. The watch is a manual wind style and it wound, set the time properly and ran well when tested. It is marked Incabloc which is a shock resistant feature. It's a truly fine timepiece!

The watch and watch brooch measure about 1 3/4 inches long, 1 1/4 inches wide and weigh 10.0 grams. The watch itself is approximately 5/8 inch in diameter. The watch is signed "Lidher", "17 Rubis", and "Incabloc" and "Swiss Made" on the dial and "17 Jewels" on the watch movement. The inside of back of the watch case is hallmarked "18K 0.750" and the back of the brooch is also hallmarked "750" on the back.

This is a fine watch brooch and a great piece of timekeeping history. It's a fabulous piece to add to a vintage watch collection and would make a very fine gift. The watch and case are in excellent vintage condition with very mild wear from previous use and it appears to have been very well cared for. As mentioned previously, the watch ran well when it was tested. Due to its age, I cannot guarantee it will continue to run without additional cleaning and servicing. It's a marvelous find!
