30s ELGIN USA Parisienne Ladies Art Deco Enamel Watch
empressissi™ is pleased to offer this early and sought after American ELGIN wrist watch, part of a series known as the 'Parisienne' designed by French designer Lucien LeLong with Art Deco influenced enamel trims. This particular model known as the 'Black-White'. I sold a similar one in the past of a 'Red-Blue' variant. It is an icon of fashion and style. Ready to wear, gift or add to your collection!
The watch houses an early manual wind caliber, running on 7 jewels. It is cased in a signed 14K white gold filled plain case with a unique black tone enamel pattern to the front. It has a mint crystal and a good crown.
The dial is factory original, small, elegant and very lightly aged with an original set of hands.
This Art Deco amazing Elgin Parisienne ladies watch measures 17mm side to side (excluding crown) and 31mm from top lug to bottom lug.
Attached to this watch is its original, ultrasonically cleaned PONTIAC US Made adjustable bracelet in excellent condition.
