This Art Deco Watch Movement mounted in a Mechanical Pencil is marked
C. Bucherer, Lucerne, Switserland and dates from c. 1925. The watch is set within a textured silver pencil, marked C.B. + silver mark .925. The watch face and glass are clear (little dust + tiny spot on clock-face). This rare ladies accessory is fitted with a silver watch-chain (1.5 meters long) marked "Sterling". Pulling the watch from the top advances the pencil lead and by turning the top the lead will be advanced or retracted.
A similar watch-pencil was sold at Christies, New York in December 2012 and realized a price of 2125 U.S.$.
The Watch-Pencil is in excellent, working condition.
