    The only deco style watch I have is this 1924 running Bulova.

    Following on the heels of Egyptian Revival, Art Deco jewelry designs favoured white metals, especially platinum. Simple shapes with clean lines and elegant motifs were intended to project a modernist perspective during the Roaring Twenties. Among design houses which became famous for their Art Deco sensibilities were Verger Freres of Paris. Ferdinand Verger was an agent for Vacheron & Constantin as early as 1879, but his sons took the company into a design relationship with the Manufacture in the 1920s. Anyone with an ounce of horological passion can appreciate what they created in pocket and wrist watches, and especially desk clocks. All of this is by way of introduction to my only Verger Freres piece; a 1922 platinum-cased pocket watch measuring only 40mm across and 4mm thick. The movement is a 16-ligne V&C caliber with 18 jewels. I probably wear it the most of my pocket pieces.

    I think this Movado in solid 14k would be my closest contender...

    The watches in the initial posting (unlike the rest that came up in response) have as much to do with Art Deco like a cow with windsurfing. This goes for the year of make (obviously), as well as the look (not a re-make in that style at all, not ever far related). And now, don't tell me, these are art deco quartz watches?

    Sorry to be so rude, but these 'Lucien Picard' watches are Chinese production of the cheapest type, making people believe that there is an uninterrupted history since 1923. Just the name was sold at some stage and the new firm has absolutely no connection to the old Swiss watchmakers. They do not even have a masthead on their website, indentifying the make and company seat in China, just bolstering around with the old history (which is not their own). Legally correct (what concerns the name), but otherwise lowest level and outside anything worth to be collected.

    A fun Elgin advertisement - “streamline” was a less decorative and more, well, streamlined style that succeeded Art Deco. There’s an exhibit going on right now in Chicago History Museum, wonder if there will be clocks and watches.





    It’s fun to locate your watch in the catalog.


    To be technical, my watch would trend more towards Streamline than Art Deco, since it was produced in the 1950s. I associate true Art Deco pieces with more ornate examples that appeared earlier.

    Art Deco wasn't necessarily "ornate" but introduced geometric motifs which were soon exaggerated by brands following the trend. A similar situation developed much earlier with movement decoration. It seems the American market always went by the credo that, if a little of something was good, a lot more was better!

    Not really Art deco, but the hands are in the style.
