Serpents are a timeless motif, appearing in jewelry designs for millennia. And this one actually keeps time! Our brilliant cobra is hiding a secret watch under her hood (yep, that’s the name for their expanding neck).
This midcentury watch is a rarity, and it's extremely hard to find one that actually works. A rare and endangered species indeed. Fits a small wrist.
Vintage gold plated metal snake marked JL, watch marked Sheffield. Approximately 6” inner circumference, with spring expansion of another half inch. Very good condition with minor wear and slight scratches to the watch surface. Timepiece is a windup that is in working condition with occassional lapses of a few minutes in accuracy. (No guarantees beyond our normal return policy.) Price includes shipping within the US.
A Cobra injects venom into its prey then swallows it whole. There are more than 250 species of these fierce creatures in the genus Naja - and the Indian Cobra is so good they named it twice, Naja naja.
