Zenith 14ct gold vintage wristwatch, circa 1938
A 14ct yellow gold curved rectangular wristwatch with two-tone dial
This Zenith wristwatch has a curved, rectangular, case, a design which became popular during the Art Deco period both for its stylish appearance and the comfort it afforded the wearer by following the natural shape of the wrist when in use. The champagne coloured dial has a two-tone finish with a contrasting tonal variation between the central rectangular sector and the chapter ring with its black Arabic numerals. The numerals are painted in black and these have naturally worn with age. The handsome blued steel hands are relatively broad and of leaf-shape.
