Once upon a time, the vast gold deposits of northern Europe were little more than a myth. Even the brightest minds of the Greek Empire didn’t know where the gold came from or how it was produced. All they knew for sure was that one-eyed mountain people stole it from the Griffins, fierce beasts with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. Creative, but not even close.
In the 5th century BC, Herodotus wrote, "The most outlying lands... are likely to have those things which we think are the finest and the rarest." At least he was right about something. There’s no mystery about where we found the precious gold for this Alta Gold Ingot Watch. You can read for yourself that the stunning centerpiece of this unique watch comes straight from the legendary "outlying lands" of the snow-covered Swiss Alps.
The Alta Gold Ingot Watch boasts a 1-gram ingot of 99.99% pure gold, issued by the world-famous Credit Suisse. Each features a unique serial number and sits at the center of a radiant, 14K rose gold-finished dial. The stainless-steel case is luxuriously rose gold-finished and a rectangle of sturdy Cotswold™ Crystal protects the elegantly minimalist design. But the Ingot Watch is more than just a pretty face. Inside, you get the luxury of legendary precision with a Swiss Ronda quartz movement. The Alta secures with a genuine leather band and is water-resistant to 3 ATM. Fits wrists 6 ½"–8 ½".
