    U.S. 18k multicolor p.w.

    Multicolor gold watches in U.S. were made in thick gold fill or solid 14k to match the approximate 14k of the soldered on colored bits alloys. I have not seen old advertising of any 18k mc watch cases or any other American made except this one years ago from original family owner. From WESTERN WATCH CASE CO. Chicago. A very complex 6 size nicely preserved. Excessive 1890's deco, 5 best gem stone types; how many manhours to make? Anyone show me another or info about 18k case multicolors. ?? artb

    I always feel so inadequate when you post these, art. Nothing to say, but just: "WOW!" I think this forum would be a little poorer without these pictures.....

    Sweet bloody Jesus!

    I'm not always a fan of hunter watches, but WOW! Who do you want me to kill so that I can get that as a reward?? I'll make it swift, silent, and look like an accident!
