UNUSUAL Costume Tourneau Lapel Watch

Measurements: 4" total length including the dangles, 1 7/8" at the widest point, 3/4" diameter watch face/case

The watch is clearly marked "Tourneau" and is in working condition (with second hand sweep).

I am not sure how to describe the unusual watch pin except to say it has foliate scrollwork, a bow, a lyre shape and is topped by a starburst.

All of the stones appear to be original. None missing.

NOTE: There is an old repair to the back which appears to be gold. I am sure the repair was done to strengthen the "neck" of the watch pin which would have been the weakest point of the physical design. With the repair, the pin is totally solid.

As with any vintage watch, I always recommend having the movement cleaned after purchase.
