Glamorous Watches

I'm not a fan of watches, as you have probably noticed, since I hardly ever post them on here. The watches below are quite the exception!
A platinum, gold, enamel, pearl and gem-set ball form watch with silver gilt and pearl-set crown brooch, by Falize, circa 1900.
 A yellow gold and enamel watch by L. Duchêne & Fils, 1810.

An 18 karat white gold, pearl, green tourmaline and diamond-set bracelet with concealable dial, by Longines, circa 1974.

A yellow gold, enamel, and pearl-set open faced Verge watch with chatelaine, by Shrapnell, London, circa 1775.

A fine and rare gold, enamel, pearl and diamond set pendant watch designed as a strawberry, Swiss made, circa 1810.

A yellow gold, enamel, and diamond pendant watch, Swiss made, circa 1890.
