We love this vintage Pedre chain bracelet watch made for Bonwit Teller, the famous department store that stood where the Trump Tower is now located on 5th Avenue in New York. The Pedre Watch Company is still in business today producing a more popular and affordable line than it used to. Gorgeous watch, chain has a very nice weight, looks and feels like solid gold.
Minimalist design with built in chunky tight curb chain. All Gold Filled, except for the Stainless case back. The chain bracelet is 5/16″ wide by 1/8″ deep and fits wrists up to 6.25″ long. Closes with built in box clasp marked 1/20 12k GF for Gold Filled.
Watch itself is 15/16″ by 7/16″ wide not including the crown or the first soldered loop of the chain.
Movement is manual wind, you will never need a battery. Works well and keeps time. Swiss made, 17 Jewels. Crystal and dial are in very good condition, very light signs of wear overall. A beautiful watch bracelet dating from the 1950’s, maybe the 1940’s, has it’s own place in NYC fashion history.
