A really beautiful Vintage 1950's Era17 Jewel Sterling and Marcasite Pendant Necklace Watch made by the Swiss watch company Hilton.
It is a mechanical (you have to wind it, no battery) 17 Jewel Incabloc (the fore-runner of "shock-resistant" in the 1950's).Signed on the face "Hilton" with 2 red stars, 17 jewels, Incabloc and Swiss.
The face is "upside down" so that when you lift it to read the time you can see it correctly without having to twist the watch around.
On the back you can just make out part ofthe sterling hallmark if you use a lighted loupe. Tried to get the shot as best as I could.
The watch is in terrific condition. It looks like I could have bought it new last week. Sets, winds, keeps correct time for over 24 hours.
I do not know if the chain is sterling (no hallmarks) so I'm going to saythe chain issilver tone.
Pendant is 2 1/2" long x 1 1/2" at widest point.
