  Large men's vintage 90’s Navajo turquoise and coral chip inlaid waterbird raised silver overlay decorated watchband. Each watch tip displays an oxidized silver base framed with decoratively stamped silver overlay. The artist cuts out the base of the bird from the first layer of silver that also includes the outer frame or rim. He then overlays the bird with another layer of silver which is similar, but has areas cut out so the artist can then fill the areas with chips. These watch tips have turquoise chips filled in area of the birds body with coral chips in the top and bottom sections of the wings along with the tail feathers filled with coral chips. The artist applies repeating sunrise stampwork across the top and down both sides of the outer silver frame. The artist finishes each watch tip by attaching a stout silver bar across the bottom to hold the stretch band and attaching a smooth silver tube at top for the watch pin holder.

Both watch tips are attached to a new 2 3/4" long adjustable stainless steel stretch band. We can exchange for a longer stretch band if requested. Click Here to see the different lengths. The watch tips each measure 1 1/2" by 1 1/8" across tapering out to 7/8" across the bottom. The watch pin holders measure 17mm (approx. 11/16"). The pin holders can also be evenly filed down to fit shorter pinned watches. The complete watchband weighs 36.6 grams (1.29 ounces or 1.18 troy ounces). They are hallmarked L - STERLING by Navajo silversmith. We attribute the artist as Navajo silversmith Robert Lincoln.
