Beautiful men's vintage Zuni turquoise nuggets and snakes watchband. Both watch tips consist of very nice oval cut and polished turquoise nuggets stacked with a smaller nugget under the larger one. The silversmith uses a silver snake and completely wraps around the lower nugget and wraps three sides of the top nugget. The artist has applied inlaid turquoise for the snakes eyes and includes three (3) silver drops placed between the nuggets and to the top side of top nugget. They attach decorative stamped sheet silver on both sides of each watch tip and finish by attaching a watch pin tube/holder at top and cross bar across the bottom for the stretchband attachment.

Each watch tip measures 1 3/8" by 1 1/8" across narrowing to 7/8" across the bottom.  The watch pin holders measure 16mm (5/8"). They are attached to a new 3 3/8" long Speidel adjustable stretchband. We can replace with a new generic 3", 3 1/2", or 4" stretchband if requested. The watchband weighs 43.8 grams (1.54 ounces or 1.41 troy ounces). Both watch tips are uniquely stamped R.&J. CALAVAZA - ZUNI - EFFIE C. - ZUNI. I've never seen the traditional snake Calavaza design signed like this and can only guess her children were involved in the creation.  $239.95
