Large solid men's vintage 70's Navajo four (4) stone turquoise decorated shadowbox watchband. Each watch tip displays two (2) oval cut and polished blue turquoise stones with slight brown matrix set in individual saw tooth bezels. The silversmith mounts the stones to an oxidized silver base and attaches a domed silver cover with cut outs exposing the stones. This technique is known as shadowbox. The artist decorates by adding motion symbols and Thunderbird symbols in opposite corners of each watch tip. The artist finishes each watch tip by attaching a sturdy cross bar on the bottom to hold the stretch band and a smooth silver tube at top for the watch pin holder.

Both watch tips are attached to a new 3 1/4" long adjustable stainless steel stretch band. We can exchange for a shorter 3" or longer 3 1/2", 4", and 4 1/4" stretch band if requested. The watch tips each measure 1 9/16" by 1 3/8" across tapering out to 15/16" across the bottom. The watch pin holders measure 17mm (approx. 11/16"). The pin holders have a slit on back side for easier pin setting. They can also be evenly filed down to fit shorter pinned watches if needed. The complete watchband weigh 44.2 grams (1.56 ounces or 1.42 troy ounces). They are stamped AT Stacked - DMY by Navajo silversmith Dick Mike Yazzie while working for the Atkinson Trading Co. Mr. Yazzie specialized in the shadowbox technique and also made kachina dolls. Large, bold, and solid vintage 70's Navajo crafted watch tips!  $179.95
