This elegant vintage 14k white gold and Diamonds Driva watch hails from the Art Deco Era, circa 1930's. The spare lines of the rectangular case are softened by curved corners and a thick bubble crystal.

Crystal is in good to very good condition with only minor nicks around the curvature of the bubble which are barely noticeable.

The dial is ivory color with black Arabic numerals and is in excellent condition with minor patina out of sight. Hands are metallic blue, characteristic of the time.

Movement is manual, needs to be wound. It is Swiss made, 17 Jewels/17J, unadjusted. Marked Driva Watch Co., Swiss, Seventeen 17 Jewels, Unadjusted and YXS.
