Native American silver artisan Carmelita Simplico handcrafted this splendid Silver and Turquoise Nugget Watch with Japanese quartz movement and second hand. Exquisitely incised with traditional designs, the sterling silver cuff-style band of this Silver and Turquoise Nugget Watch is studded with six turquoise nuggets. Handcrafted in the U.S.A. Naturally occurring turquoise variations and shapes as well as individually handcrafted silver band assures each is unique.
The long tradition of stamping designs into sterling silver—like the designs incising this Silver and Turquoise Nugget Watch—is believed to have begun in the 1850s with Atsidi Sani, who is said to have learned to work silver from a Mexican smith. The extensive silver jewelry holdings of the National Museum of the American Indian include many beautiful examples of hand-stamped sterling silver jewelry.

"It is beautiful. Received it today for Christmas. Trouble is, it isn't working. The scallop part on each side of watch are curved over the piece holding the pins of the watch, so how are we going to get it off to check battery? If we, or jeweler, bend them back out of the way, will they break? As much money as was spent on this, I would expect it to be working."
