What we think
Well if we weren't running a business then we would keep all of our watches! And this would be a keeper for sure. We have not seen another in this condiotion in 25 years, so that makes this special watch quite rare in our modest opinion. The “Jeux D’Argent” is now a design icon and the connection to Andrew Grima is a must for all the design Boffs and fans of silver jewelry in particular! is it a watch or a bracelet ? Both.
