1910’s Helbros W. Co. Platinum, Diamond, and Sapphire Watch
A. Brandt + Son
Price range: $$
Before their universal acceptance as outfit essentials, wristwatches were originally created for women as a counterpart to mens’ pocket watches—most early examples of fine make were also consciously designed to fit seamlessly with a lady’s jewelry wardrobe. A platinum watch like this one from A. Brandt + Son, tastefully embellished with sapphires and diamond-set fronds, would be excellent especially for someone who tends to streamline their accessorizing.
A true testament to great design and the beautiful durability of platinum, this 107-year old timepiece would look right at home upon a modern woman’s wrist.
