The American jewelry brand Celebrity N.Y. has existed for a short period of time, from the mid-1950s to early 1970s in New York. However, the approximate time and exact place of creation of the brand are almost the only facts we know about it. According to the authors of the book “Fabulous Fakes: A Passion for Vintage Costume Jewelry”, all decorations made by Celebrity – were handmade. Craftsmen manually inserted rhinestones and artificial pearls into intricate metal frames.
This is an example of one of these pieces. Featuring a lady imprinted on a cameo, it is a locket wristwatch. With the CELEBRITY sign stamped on the back and front of the watch. Stainless steel back. The metal of the band is oxidized and decorated with filigree design to give the piece a victorian look. The band is 1 cm thick and the oval watch face is 2 cm W x 2.5 cm L. Watch has a total measurement of 8" in length. Watch is non-adjustable.
This was purchased from an auction in Ontario so condition is used. There are some slight scratches on the back of the watch as is seen on the photos.
All of our watches come with a free battery replacement. Upon purchase, a new battery will be installed so that you receive a fully functioning watch.
