It's a great time to sell watches.

It is also a great time to buy specific watches, if available, or if the opportunity presents itself..

To update what JC says about "the time to sell"--it is time to sell if you have the correct goods, flashy and minty to HALIBUTS!

In defense of that watch, it really was one of the nicest Lady's watch cases I have ever seen.

Do you think it was straight?

It was a beauty and I would have bitten at the estimate for the LW, as she is fond owls.

Isn't it possible to take a piece of a stand alone jewelry design and add it to a plain case with a surrounded ring?

The appropriate question is WHEN was it done?

Yes.

Yes.

Pieces like this were "put together." Was this one originally intended to be what it became? Was it a family piece repurposed by a family jeweler? Was it lately put together? I guess we can't really know.
