Here's a quite unique, leather and sterling silver watch/cuff that was made by Running Bear in western New Mexico.
This is the first watch that we've ever seen that was made in this style and, as the pictures will show you, it is certainly very attractive.
The inside of this watch/bracelet measures 5+1/4" long, plus there's a gap of 1+1/4". It has a bit of flexibility so a small, careful, size adjustment can be made.
It weighs a very comfortable 35 grams.
To make this watch more attractive the artist added stamped silver applications on both sides of the watch face, plus some very unusual "woven" silver detailing.
Because I had the watch on my wrist, to take one of the pictures, I can tell you first hand that having a leather shank makes this watch very comfortable to wear.
Running Bear is not an artist but it's a jewelry trader that employs Native American artists to make their jewelry. So, even though there is no artist's hallmark on this watch, we know for sure that it was made by an Indian artist.
This wonderful example of genuine Native American made jewelry will certainly make a terrific addition to anyone's jewelry collection, or a great gift.
Some pictures are enlarged to show detail.
The coin in one of the pictures is a quarter.
