Vintage 1930s Art Deco Cocktail watch featuring beautiful marcasite stones. The strap of the watch is made up of leaf shaped links set in a silver tone metal encrusted with marcasite gemstones. The face of the watch has gold lettering with the words 'Vidar' and 'Foreign'.

 

The watch has a wind up mechanism, which means the piece does not take a battery, the watch is simply wound up using the dial on the right hand side. The watch has a safety chain to keep the piece extra secure.

 

Marcasites are actually Pyrite also known as Fools Gold. It was used in jewellery due to it's ability to catch the light, giving a diamond effect.
