Fewer people have the time to care for fine flatware, and many ornate sets handed down through the generations end up gathering dust. When the California designer who created this watch inherited her great-grandmother’s 19th-century collection, she was inspired to turn it into jewelry. Our toggle-clasp, silver-plated watch is made using a reproduction of a Victorian-era pattern, evoking memories of long-ago celebrations.
Bought this lovely watch as a gift for myself. Have other jewelry made of silver cutlery and this was a great addition. Clasp is easy to work, mother-of-pearl face on watch is pretty. So far works well.
