Art Deco The Art Deco period was one of the first truly worldwide movements of fashion in the arts, which reached its peak during the 1920’s and 1930’s. It had its roots in Paris just before the First World War. It took its name from Arts Décoratifs, an international Exhibition of Modern Decorative Arts in Paris in 1925. Art Deco was a stylistic about turn to the Art Nouveau movement which preceded it. Gone were the soft, curved shapes and lines and in came straight lines and the bold geometric forms influenced by cubism and the desire to be modern. Parisian designers and jewellers such as Louis Cartier and René Lalique played an important role in popularising the Art Deco mode in their jewellery and objects. Infusing their designs with bold bright colours, setting emeralds, rubies and sapphires in simple lines and elegant settings. Watch design was, as everything else, also influenced by the new modern ideal of straight lines, so watch case began to become rectangular and square shapes. Case, movement and dial signed. All watches are given a full thorough service. They are stripped down to their individual parts, thoroughly checked for any obvious wear and tear, cleaned, re-oiled, reassembled and regulated. The final result is that the case, dial and movement are in pristine condition. Measurements: Case: Width: 16 mm (1.6 cm) 5/8" (0.63 Inches) Case Length with Articulated lugs: 40 mm (4.0 cm) 1 9/16” (1.58 Inches) Bracelet fully adjustable
