I wore it for 24 hours and it is keeping accurate time as of this listing. Vintage watches should be serviced by a professional periodically. This watch has been carefully stored & not worn for years, yet it is still accurate. This attests to the superb quality of the timepiece

Glass: Excellent condition, I see no scratches, etc with a loupe
Closure: Extremely secure foldover clasp that snaps in tightly. Has 2 lengths you can adjust it to. The leaf-like design continues onto the foldover clasp and is even on the area it folds into !

VINTAGE ITEMS: If this is a vintage item, please note that it is older and may show wear. This is what makes the item so appealing. If you are looking for a brand new item, this is NOT an item you should bid on. I am not an appraiser/expert in jewelry, vintage or antique items. I just describe them to the best of my ability and inform you of any flaws I may see.
PAYMENT: PAYPAL accepted and only to a confirmed address.Please pay within 3 days of auction end or advise me of other arrangements you may need so that we avoid any misunderstandings. S/H includes signature confirmation & insurance. I reserve the right to cancel any bids and/or end the auction at my discretion.
RETURN POLICY: Only permitted if I have grossly misrepresented the item. Buyer's remorse (i.e., it does not match my eyes, hair, skin, clothes, dog/cat/bird/fish or galaxy) is not an acceptable reason for return ! I will do my very best to make you jump with joy, within reason, and work with you.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL AND AS IS. I cannot accept returns/refunds/exchanges (unless grossly misrepresented), as I'm not a dealer nor a store; just a mom trying to make ends meet honestly & help some friends sell their items, as times are rough for many. Please base your decision to bid on the description & photos and ask any questions you may have prior to bidding. I'm not all knowing, but will definitely answer to the best of my ability & would not misrepresent an item. Some items were reviewed, photographed and documented by my jeweler/gemologist for authenticity and kept in their files. Photographs are of the actual item you will receive, are enlarged to show details clearly & are considered part of the auction description. All gold is acid tested; All gemstones/diamonds Presidium tested.
Please take a moment to view some of my other items, as I only list a few pieces at a time. Regardless of your decision to purchase, I appreciate your interest in my auction and thank you for taking the time to view it !
