Bold heavy vintage 50's-60's Navajo turquoise and coral decorated watchband. Each watch tip has a cut and polished turquoise nugget and cut and polished large chunk of branch coral all set into deep smooth silver bezels. The silversmith has applied the turquoise nugget at top on one watch tip and the coral at top of the other. Other than that obvious difference, the other is that the watch tip with turquoise mounted on bottom has two (2) cross stamped buttons under the turquoise and the other watch tip only has the one cross button under the coral. The rest are identical with multiple scrolls, decorative stamping of sunrises, chopped smooth wire across the tops and notched wire across the bottoms. All mounted to blackened scorched silver bases. The silversmith finishes each watch tip by attaching coiled wire tubes for watch pin holders and soldered twisted wire at bottom to hold stretchband. This style attachment is a sign of vintage silversmithing for watch tips.

Each watch tip measures 1 7/8" by 1 1/4" across narrowing to 7/8" across the bottom. It comes with the old style 3" long scissor stretchband. These are not adjustable, but we will exchange for a shorter or long adjustable stretchband of 2 3/4", 3 1/8", 3 1/4", 3 3/8", or 3 1/2" long if requested. The watch pin holders measure 21mm (13/16") and can be filed down evenly for a shorter watch pin. Our standard watches have 17mm watch pins so these tips can handle larger watches such as nicer Seiko's or similar. The heavy watchband weighs a whopping 52.3 grams (1.84 ounces or 1.68 troy ounces) and is unsigned sterling silver. Very nice bold vintage watchband!  $149.95
