Here a 6 size 1890 Western Watch Case Co. I showed 2 years ago. Have not seen comparably elaborate examples as I expected. There are many superior quality of better artistic refinement from many worldwide sources and ages but these bits of colored alloy gold soldered
on cases like this one seem to be mainly American 1880-1930. Many colored gold fine English and Swiss dials, not watch cases? artb

JAMES: Thanks for showing a couple of the best of what I defined as the refined and artistic gold cased types. Good to see but not the less sophisticated and colorful multicolors. Here an unusual American enamel with 7 diamonds representing appreciated age 7 son gift to wife and a less refined diamond and enamel. artb

Whenever I see these posts, I think that I go to the wrong places - and probably bring the wrong amount of money!!! Although I would very much like to see watches such as these in my collection, I am glad that they were made at all and that threads such as this one give me the opportunity to see at least some pictures of them. Many thanks!
