    50 years of selective watch collecting includes many fine lady examples.

    There is a lot to appreciate in small mechanism technology and jewelry work. Here a couple fine Omega, 1955 and 1968. Elgin 1950 21j adjusted miniature, fine multicolor gold. Ladymatic Omega has accuracy of big Omega w.w. 1968 is all 18k gold unused sold scrap value. Last of Elgin p.w. and w.w. designs. Unusually fine antique case work. I think these old pendants are best lady dress up watches.

    I love the simple Ladymatic. Too bad the dials are so small I can see them anymore!

    This movement is about dime size and very clearly marked so not only accurate but visibility excellent. I like your preference. Art B.

    I find these tiny mechanical watches absolutely fascinating. I mean...just look at them! Especially, look at the tiny balance screws! Amazing. I have two, neither of which I can wear (can't comfortably see the dials!); one I keep because it was my mom's (the Birks), and the other (Gruen) that I keep just because the tiny movement is so amazing.

    Nice to see your collector preferences that actually I entirely agree with. Hope more ladies will. For 50+ years my late Nebraska farm girl wife was a very supportive appreciator of my wide ranging collection; especially the multicolor golds there called Black Hills gold. Here a couple very like yours. art b.
