NAWCC Bulletin No. 431: January/February 2018

Table of Contents

Our sample article is Part 2 of Randy Jaye’s series on the Progression of Wristwatch Styles. As the production of wristwatches steadily began to rise around the world during the 1920s, the pocket watch was increasingly challenged for the timepiece of choice. The Art Deco movement, which began to flourish during the 1920s, influenced wristwatch designs with progressive styles including dashing geometric shapes and posh embellishments.
