c1930s-1950s Very Rare Watch Cufflinks Set

One cufflink is normal and the other is a working watch.

The cufflinks underneath or both signed 12k gf whilst the watch one is also signed 10 RGP for Rolled Gold so I assume this is referring to the watch part whilst the shank and pin part are gold filled. The watch is stamped Swiss in Gold Lettering and Broadway and 17 jewels.

The watch winds, ticks, runs and appears to keep accurate time. I cannot guarantee watches as it is unknown to me when it was last serviced. So the set is sold as found and as is. I highly recommend that the watch be serviced by a good watchmaker to keep it in good running order.

The set is in very good vintage condition

Whilst it came to me in the box you see and will come to the new owner that way, this box is not original.

A great unusual set of cufflinks. Sure to be a talking point with your friends and colleagues

What is Vintage or Antique Gold Filled Jewellery?

Vintage Gold fill is an actual layer of gold which has been pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating. Vintage Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. Anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of an allergic reaction.

Vintage Gold filled jewellery is made from solid gold and filled with other alloys such as brass, bronze and sterling silver. Think of it like a sandwich with solid gold on the outside and a metal filling. Vintage Gold filled wears, looks and lasts like solid gold because its outer surface IS solid gold.

Antique and Vintage “Gold Filled” jewellery is a term that should only be used for items that were made in the USA and if you are unsure you should ask your seller its origin. Vintage and Antique gold filled items were regulated by the US government and the gold content must be at least 1/20 of the weight of the item. Unfortunately the term gold filled has been hijacked and become generic and is being misused for cheap gold plate jewellery from Asia. Gold plate has no regulations. Vintage Gold Fill does not wear off like gold plate. Vintage Gold filled jewellery even offers more than solid gold such as strength and durability because of the inner metal core as solid gold is a soft metal and tends to dent and bend.

Please also be aware that Victorian gold filled pieces are generally unmarked for gold content and hallmarking in the USA did not generally happen until after 1907. Even then the maker could choose to mark the jewellery or the bo that it came in so that many pieces are not hallmarked with their gold content. Antique and Vintage gold filled jewellery is normally 10k, 12k, or 14k in gold content. Beware of the newer cheap imitations being marketed as gold filled which are in fact imported from Asia. They are not vintage or antique. They are not gold filled. They are cheap gold plate imitations. The term “gold filled” is being misused by unscrupulous sellers.
