2019 marked a historic date since in the November of that year ceased to exist what was, at the time, the Oldest Nationwide Jeweler in America: Bailey Banks & Biddle, founded on the 10th of September 1832. One of its most excellent creations is undoubtedly evidenced by the watch bracelet offered here. It actually is a watch produced by Blancpain and retailed by the American jeweler but the effect obtained is that of a true, precious crown of flowers on the wrist with the impeccable use of gold as the basis of the entire structure, of the blue and green enamel for the decorations, of turquoise to provide a lively note of color and diamond to further embellish this work of art. Hidden in this bouquet of flowers and leaves, protected by a flap, there is the small satin gold dial.
