    1896 strange original Columbus big 18 size p.w. combination

    Lots of multicolor gold small size lady watches 0s and 6s then. Long time observer and owner of mc cases. Never knew of a gold fill with girlie decoration in largest 18 size. Recently from antique dealer. Their photos. D. Gruen who was not at Columbus 1896 would not have approved.

    Photos not loading. My own normally do, but sometimes with difficulty. These loaded ok in another forum.

    Watch is dealer marked Yeoman dial and mvnt. 15j unadjusted 235,000+. Case is J. Boss 14K 20 year very nice with the commonly used, on lady watch mc cases, bird and flowers. Columbus not marked anywhere.
    Similar to 12s solid 14k photo with crude bird. Of course not so deeply engraved.

    Art, other earlier private label Columbus marked W.P. Yeoman, Waukegan Ill has been seen with "The Yeoman Watch on the dial. Case has of course not anything to do with Columbus or Gruen.

    The engravings on some of the smaller Columbus watches are amazing.

    I notice the birds usually are from a 'standard bird'. I do not believe I have ever seen actual species -- but my birder abilities are known to be deficient.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
