We include at no extra charge a battery timepiece (which is not sterling silver nor Native American made).
Paula says - "You are buying one watch cuff bracelet. Striking Navajo silver work with two bear claws, four beautiful turquoise stones and four coral pieces set in serrated bezels and accented with sterling silver rain drops, leaves, fans and braids. A gorgeous watch.
"We include a new inexpensive timepiece with the cuff bracelet as a convenience so you can use the watch right away. We have used this type of timepiece on most of our new and pawn watch tips and they have run fine, just needing a new battery about once a year. The timepiece will be running when it ships but carries no guarantee. You can replace the timepiece if you so choose. If you want, we can provide contact information for the jeweler we use for repairs and modifications."
