I love these watches. I rarely buy anything past 1915, and art deco isn't my thing either, but I love these pendant watches. They work too, and they are so elegant. This one is sterling silver with paste. It is in excellent condition, and just marked "swiss." The photo makes it appear that two of the stones are missing , but that is not the case; I don't know why it appears that way in the photo because it doesn't with the naked eye.
