I recently did the CAD work and printing for the centre of this art deco bracelet. As much as I tried to convince my customer, they wanted to remove the watch, take all the diamonds out and then have a centre piece made converting it from a watch into a bracelet.
In the image below you can see the original watch on top, with the finished bracelet below. Both look stunning, but it is such a shame to break up lovely pieces such as this. Rather than charge for this job I took the watch case, movement and glass in exchange for my work.
After a service and new parts for the movement and replacing the removed diamonds with new ones, I now own a lovely platinum Vertex ladies watch. I am so glad to save it from the scrap heap!
