UP CLOSE WITH RARE HIGH JEWELLERY WATCHES FROM DONALD E. GRUENBERG

If recent runways are any indication, the 1960s and 70s are back with a vengeance. Groovy period fashion has obvious contemporary relevance, but anyone looking for style inspiration should feast their eyes these ultra-rare, high-jewellery timepieces designed in the same era. Watch brands like Piaget, Omega, and Patek Philippe commissioned renowned jewellery designers like Gilbert Albert and Andrew Grima, often producing special one-of-a-kind timepieces.

Vintage watch dealer Justin Gruenberg, whose site The Keystone is a destination for collectors, keeps a sharp lookout for these rare pieces at his father’s eponymous Beverly Hills boutique, Donald E. Gruenberg. Discovering a few of the Gruenberg’s unique treasures on 1stdibs led us to even more buried treasure.

We spoke to Justin about his unique and very personal collection. Here
