This beautiful watch is from one of the very first collections designed by Erica Courtney in the early 1980's. Her name is stamped on the gold timepiece, which features sapphire blue marquise cut Swarovski crystals with a matching blue genuine leather strap. Included is the original velveteen pouch that is gold stamped with Erica Courtney's name, although some of the letters in her name are worn.
It's hard to believe that the watch is a good 38 years old given the great condition of both the timepiece and the strap. It has a brand new battery and is fully functional.

Back in 1984, Erica featured Swarovski crystals on everything from sunglasses and watches, to bandanas and bustiers. Her line was actually represented in the very same showroom as mine when I did outrageous earrings - also using Swarovski crystals. I ended up purchasing four of her watches. They were supposed to be for resale, but I couldn't resist keeping them for myself. Even in those days they were expensive. I would get so many compliments whenever I wore them.
Check out the other colors: black with clear crystals, cognac with AB crystals, and blue with Blue crystals under the Vintage Collection.
