Believed to embody virtues like wisdom, good fortune, and health, turquoise has been an important part of cultures as diverse as the ancient Egyptians, the Navajo, and the Tibetans. For the Navajo in the American Southwest, the stone is part of rain ceremonies where it represents the connection between sea and sky.


A Navajo artisan working in Arizona hand-sets turquoise cabochons within swirls of cast sterling silver, all of which surround a Japanese quartz watch face on a heavy-duty elastic band. Stones will vary slightly.


6" circumference, 1/2"W.

Believed to bestow the wearer with courage, luck, health, and protection, turquoise has been used in jewelry making for millennia by cultures as diverse as the Navajo, ancient Egyptians, and Tibetans. Turquoise can range in color from light yellow-green to dark blue, and usually contains turquoise matrix, the dark veins of other minerals with which it developed. It figures in the creation myth of the Anasazi Indians, who tell that the tribe first entered the world through the mouth of a New Mexico cave that is now a turquoise mine. In Tibet, the sky is called "the turquoise of heaven," and both men and women value jewelry featuring the gem in sky blue hues. Turquoise is sometimes given as a love token to one's betrothed, because its color is said to remain pure as long as the affection lasts.

This watch was really nicer than I expected. The beautiful cast silver sides which hold the turquois are the only Navajo made parts. The band is flex type and seems to be good quality. The watch body is made [*] but also seems to be good quality. I really liked the mother-of-pearl look to the watch face. The whole thing seems well made and is very attractive.

I loved the watch when I saw it on line. Ordered one and was disappointed that it was a green stone rather than blue tourqoise. That would have been ok however, when I gave this as a gift, within two days the watch would not keep time. I called National Geographic and they quickly replaced it with another watch. That one too would not keep time. I took it to [@] Canada and had them replace he insides so that I could be assured that my gift would actually work. I still have not fixed the second one and it sits in my purse. It cost approximately $50.00 to have the watch repaired. Needless to say, I am not impressed.

    Nice looking everyday watch. Yes, the stretch band is small, but fits me as I have small wrists. Silver with turquoise accents looks great with my other silver jewelry.

      I bought this watch because it goes with Indian jewelry. I am delighted that it is extremely accurate and beautiful as well as a match for my Indian jewelry.

              Very light and disappointing quality! Even for this good price, I expected better. Bracelet is extremely short even though it is extendible, which that in my case is a good thing. The gift box is a joke as watch is just put in plastic bag inside box.

                        You need to be specific as to the stones being real or a composite/paste.

                            Was given as a Christmas Gift. Very disappointed, bracelet / watch post fell apart during first hour of wear. Cheasey workmanship. Not much of the work by Native Americans. (Unless they are living in Tawain now.) Refund was given but took over 6 weeks to get the credit. Had to call customer service to remind them of the refund due. Will not order from NatGeo Catalogue again.
