Re: Help me find (replica?) ribbon band for women's Tonneau watch

I agree that the sterling silver back cover is peculiar. Gold sensitives are very unusual. I suspect the sensitivity was not due to gold but, actually, nickel (a commonly used alloy in white gold). Such a sensitivity was clearly common enough to make it worth Jaccard's while to create (and patent) a...

Re: Help me find (replica?) ribbon band for women's Tonneau watch

I managed to get photos of my watch (below). Apparently, my grandmother was allergic to gold (?!) because the watch has a sterling silver cover that slips over the watch back. The cover was (patented and) made by Jaccard's in St. Louis. From the movement's serial number, the watch is from 1918. But ...

It is older than I'd initially thought (1918). It reportedly had a "detachable bracelet". From these forum...

Help me find (replica?) ribbon band for women's Tonneau watch

In sorting through various items I've inherited, I recently realized that a Hamilton women's wrist watch whose case I thought was sterling is actually 14K white gold. (I'll add a photo of it when I can--I didn't see anything like it on this forum.) Then I realized that it ran. And I wanted to wear i...
