The shaped jade pendant has a carved top and emeralds and sapphires set into the corners of the back and front. The back cover has an Asian design carved into it. The green enamel dial has white lettered Chinese characters for the numbers, blued steel snake hands, an acanthus leaf glazed bezel and is signed V F Vlchek. The back cover is friction fit. Below is the stem with a cabochon sapphire that sets and winds the watch.
The movement has a 25mm backplate, is signed Vacheron and Constantine and is numbered 342043. I believe that puts it around 1911, but I could be wrong. They became one of the larges tool companies in the world.
It is now hung on a 12k gold chain. There is a small scrape at the center of the dial. Any speculation as to the materials is just that - speculation. It is running and keeping time, but we make no guarantee it will continue to do so.
