Bold vintage Navajo turquoise sandcast watchband. The silversmith has created two (2) sandcast watch tips from a sand cut mold, formed the angle shape, and mounted a turquoise nugget in the center of each. One watch tip has a teal blue-green nugget with rust brown matrix and the other has a blue-green nugget with dark brown matrix. Appears the teal blue-green nugget is a replacement? She finishes both watch tips by soldering a wire across the bottom and a barrel tube at top to hold both the watch and the stretchband

Both watch tips measure 1 11/16” by 1 3/16” across narrowing to 7/8” across the bottom. The watch pin tubular shank measures 17-18mm (11/16”) and can be filed down to fit smaller watch shanks. The come with a new 3 1/8” stainless steel adjustable stretchband and we can exchange for different lengths if requested. Click Here to see the different lengths. The complete watchband weighs 53.3 grams (1.88 oz or 1.71 ozt) and is hallmarked N.TSO - AT stacked by deceased Navajo silversmith Nellie Tso (1932-2011) while working for Atkinson Trading Company. The watch tips would be considered somewhat collectable since the silversmith has passed on and the Atkinson Shop has closed. Bold vintage Navajo sandcast turquoise watchband! $169.95
