    Is there a demand for Niello Watch Cases

    I finally got a copy of that watch book Complete guide to watches and came across these things and am querious how do they work? Do they wrap around the watch or simply atach them selves to the shell. Second I have not heard of these things before are they still popular or extinct?

    Niello is just a silver alloy soldered on a normal steel or silver watch case in a pattern. Not many are produced nowadays.

    I have one from the 20's or 30's. They look pretty cool IMO.
