Diamond Enamel Sunfish Lapel Watch, circa 1860



A delightful blend of watchmaking refinement and unique artistry, this charming lapel watch takes the form of a sunfish. The aquatic creature is stunning in its level of detail. Crafted from 18k yellow gold, each scale and fin is perfectly formed and beautifully accented with red and black enamel, while diamond accents add a hint of sparkle and definition to the enchanting fish. Contained within the unique form is a diminutive timepiece, which tells the time through both Roman and Arabic numerals on a white enamel face. An intricate neoclassical engraved border encases the clock face, adding further refinement to this one-of-a-kind jewelry piece. Circa 1860 2 1/4" high x 1 1/2" wide
