Delmark Pendant Watch

I have a watch very similar to this ended listing:

120737455027

My watch reads "seven X jewels"- does this mean seventeen jewels? My watch also appears to have one ruby/garnet, and the rest of the jewels appear to be quartz.

Does anyone know the time period when these watches were made? I will try to get some good pics of mine tomorrow and add them. Mine was added to a black ribbon pendant, the kind they used to use on ladies wrist watches. Thanks for any help you can give me. I know nothing about watches!

The lapel watch that you reference is actually not a very good example.

While the dealer placed a starting price of $395.00 on the watch, he had little chance of achieving a price anywhere near that. I'm betting he meant to place a price of $39.50 on it, and even that is overly optimistic for a worn gold plated out of fashion lapel watch.

Hopefully you'll get some pictures on and we can all take a look.

I am going to take pictures now to upload.

While it was overpriced somewhat, I have learned by researching it is a pool of lights piece- the front and back are rock crystal, and I have only seen two others in addition to that dealer's and mine! There is a current auction running if you search pool of lights.

Delmark POL Watch Blurry
Delmark POL Watch Side 2
Delmark POL Watch Back 1
Delmark POL Watch Face

Rock crystal/Pool of Lights items sell well now since an Art Deco Pool of Lights necklace was featured on the Antiques Roadshow.

"I have only seen two others in addition to that dealer's and mine!"

While there may only be a few on eBay, they aren't considered "rare" and I've seen more than my share while going to antique and resale stores in my area.

The one that is currently listed on eBay ends in a few days, so that should give you an idea of value.

I will be on the lookout for them. I have only seen one in my lifetime (I love vintage watches and have many.)

There is one on another site pending sale for $230.

It is a very basic movement, 7 jewels, cheap fashion watch from the latter part of the 20th. C. No interest to watch collectors, its only value would be as a watch to wear and use if you like the look.
