Undercover – secret watches

Did you know that secret watches were a huge vogue in the 1930s, '40s and '50s? Their charm has never been lost as they still appeal women in love with beautiful adornments. Just imagine amazing pieces of jewelry which hide a secret that only the owner knows and she is proud to reveal it at the right moment, to everyone’s surprise.

Today watches are no longer just functional tools but accessories that emphasize your style and status. The fusion of watches and jewels is about craftsmanship and works of art.

Just look at these pieces and you will see what I’m talking about:
