Baubles: Clocks

Masterpieces of the jeweler's art: Clocks. I wouldn't mind being roused from sleep each morning by any of these remarkable jewels.
A jade, onyx, mother of pearl and diamonds clock created by Cartier in the 1920's

Also by Cartier this stunning piece "The Chimera Clock" is made from white onyx, jade, gold, enamel and diamonds. The clock face itself is contained within a large yellow topaz.

This is another "Mystery Clock" by Cartier, (c. 1990) this time with a gold and lapis lazuli base and a rock crystal enclosing the clock face. The numerals are studded with diamonds.

Finally, this clock made from black onyx, jade, coral and gold has the clock face enclosed in a large emerald-cut yellow citrine with diamond supports
