The highly respected E. Jaccard Jewelry Co. of St. Louis created this masterfully crafted lapel watch. The hand-wrought case is made of 18K yellow gold and features two hinged segments, the first of which showcases the masterfully pierced and engraved motif of a dragonfly flying amongst the reeds. The beautiful insect is bejeweled in glistening diamonds, emeralds and rubies of brilliant color. Giving the effect of a golden sunset in the green marsh is the second segment: a background of vivid and highly detailed guilloché enameling that helps give this piece a brilliant three-dimensional effect. The case then opens to reveal a fine white enamel face with gold Arabic numerals to tell the time, while a subsidiary dial at the six o'clock position indicates the seconds.

E. Jaccard Jewelry Co. was one of the most respected jewelry firms in the United States. Founded by Swiss immigrants in the mid-1800s, the business underwent several partnership changes, eventually evolving into E. Jaccard Jewelry Co. in the 1860s. The firm was renowned for its variety of quality luxury goods, including watches, clocks, diamonds, silver and even music boxes. By far, the firm's timepieces were the core of the business, with Jaccard having their own watch manufactories in Switzerland, Paris and numerous other European cities.

Watch workings are signed "E. Jaccard Jewelry Co. / St. Louis, MO" with the serial number "985048"
