   The ring watch has been around for centuries, however, it's appearance has been somewhat rare and intermittent. Similar to a pendant watch, which is more practical, these jewelry related watches saw popularity with women of wealth during the late 19thC and early 20thC. Fine examples can be found emanating from the better European and American jewelry houses of the 1920's and 30's. I have come across some very nice pieces in platinum, colored gemstone and diamond.

   I had wanted to make a ring watch for many years, and set forth hand to tool and made this  piece for my gallery on speculation.  The watch has just sold and I am thrilled that it will be enjoyed by someone other than myself.
   As a side note, all of the watches I make are one of a kind, so they have been numbered accordingly. The first watch I made was watch No.1 which my wife owns. The watch in the previous posting is watch No.10. The ring watch is watch No. 13
