Discovering a Coro Dove watch pin is a remarkable find -- in pristine working condition, nearly unheard of. Beautifully made by the Coro company the mechanical watch portion is ingeniously hidden under the dove's protective wing. In finely textured brushed goldtone, the dove's neck is gracefully curved, it's beak preening the multi layered swoop of feathers. Even the dove's clawed feet and red rhinestone eye are detailed on this amazing functional jewel. Under it's securely hinged wing the Swiss made workings of the watch are housed in a lustrous shiny goldtone border. The cream colored face is accented with goldtone hour hash marks and "12" noon / midnight numeral at top. Hands are also in goldtone. The watch is mechanical with goldtone winding / setting stem. Absolutely top notch quality from Coro. The watch pin comes in original pink Coro gift box with golden foil bottom and bow stenciling and lettering on top portion.
The watch pin measures about 2 inches x 1 5/8 inches. Profile is approximately 5/8 inch. As with vintage watch pins, when worn and wing is lifted watch is in readable upright position.
Condition is pristine / excellent vintage. All components are original and intact. The watch has been running and keeping time beautifully. I cannot, of course predict it's "expiration" date. It has been keeping time for approximately 50 to 60 years and has obviously been well cared for. With continued care it may run well for many years to come. All goldtone finishes intact, front and back. Hinged wing is strong and secure with tight snap shut closure. Pin back strong and secure. Cream colored watch face is unblemished with goldtone hash marks and hands as new. Watch crystal is clear and unblemished with no hazing or scratches. Original red rhinestone eye intact. No damage / no repairs. As pristine as it gets.
The watch pin is signed on reverse with "Coro" in script with pegasus and copyright symbol preceding. Watch face is signed "Coro" at top and "Swiss Made" at bottom. Watch stem is stamped with a "C" and intersecting arrows.
