Well, the time has come and I have taken my first pics of watches, namely wristwatches. (Shame on me as I should post my first pic of a pocket watch since I am the pocket watch moderator, right? Big Grin) Eek

I love unique faceted crystaled wristwatches. I have two in my wristwatch collection I think are unusual. I have to admit it's why I purchased both watches! Take a look!

What is your most unique faceted crystaled wristwatch? Confused Show a pic!

Stephanie,

Congratulations on posting your first pictures!!

They look absolutely great!

My ww crystals are "Plain Jane" and not nearly as nice as the ones you have shared here with us.

Post more pictures when you can.

Stephanie, I think I called this a Longines, when we discussed it before. It is, obviously, a Lord Elgin.

The crystal is divided into four main facets.
