Such a charming vintage watch this is, dating back to the mid 20th century c1950! The working Dupont watch is predominantly made of sterling silver with a stainless steel back case and ladder connection. The entire front surface of the watch case and band is encrusted with dazzling marcasite gems. The navette-shaped dial is lovely, it features a row of graduated marcasites along the bezel frame. The fanciful hinged band is reminiscent of Art Deco design with a row of fan-shaped profiles resting along the centre of single marcasite rows. The hinged clip-over clasp is also decorated with marcasite gems.
The dial is a light ivory colour and there is yellow-tone hands along with alternate numerals and batons. Commensurate with age, there is some light dial marks seen upon close-up view. Painted to the dial is 'DUPONT' '17 JEWELS' 'SWISS' 'INCABLOC'.
The watch is made by prominent French brand 'Dupont' and has a working manual-wind Swiss, incabloc and seventeen jeweled movement.
The case measures 20mm long x 15.00mm wide and the marcasite band measures 8.00mm and tapers down to 5.00mm wide near clasp. Length of watch measures around 17cm, give and take a little bit with the length adjuster clasp, there is a safety chain connected for extra security. Stamped 'STERLING SILVER' to the back of clasp.

A fanciful marcasite watch. The perfect little vintage timepiece to keep you on time!

The condition of the vintage watch is very good. Besides some light dial marks, there are no marcasite stones missing and the clasp click secures firmly. There is a darkened natural patina to the silver surface adding a further depth of character, albeit can be polished if you prefer. The mechanism is in working order- ticking nicely and not skipping a beat within 24 hours! Albeit due to the age the mechanism cannot come with a guarantee.
