It is set with sparkly rose cut diamonds approx. 0.25ctw by spread in the middle, resembling a flower cluster. The enamel work is further decorated with five flower white enamel petals in contrast to the blue guilloche enamel background.

There are further designs of hearts and flowers in Art Nouveau patterns in the enamel work, truly a remarkable piece!

Vulcain: A Swiss Luxury Watchmaker

"Vulcain is a Swiss luxury watch brand founded by Ditisheim brothers in 1858 in Le Chaux de Fonds. Today Vulcain is an undisputed leader and specialist in the production of mechanical alarm watches.

In 1858, the Ditisheim brothers made a grand entrance onto the watchmaking scene: their manufacture was immediately noted for the quality of its products: complication watches, chronometers and chronographs. Located at the heart of the Neuchatel mountains, the cradle of Swiss precision, it was to receive international acclaim at the Chicago and Paris World Fairs. In 1890 Maurice Ditisheim created Vulcain Complication pocket watch." - The entire above excerpt is provided by Masterhorologer. Click here for the page written.

Note: The enamel is in great condition, with no enamel loss, which may seem so due to the reflection of the light.
