I’m interested in the Freddy Charlie – Navajo Sterling Silver Boulder Turquoise Ladies Watch Tips HK Item # WL-381. Can you tell me about the quality of the watch itself? In many cases, I’ve seen some beautiful work undone by using a cheap Chinese timepiece. Do you know anything about the make/origin of the watch itself?
Most of the Native American artists just sell us the tips. Watch tips are the decorative panels between the watch face and the band.
We add a watch face and expansion band to the tips allow the buyer to see how the watch looks as a complete unit. But basically we are selling the hand made tips. Many of our customers use the watches and bands we include as is and some change to their favorite watch and/or band.
The watch faces are inexpensive battery operated quartz watches. We’ve never had a complaint about them and I have a half dozen watches myself from the store with these watch faces in them and have not had a problem. But they are nothing fancy or expensive. I think they are made in China.
You can easily change the watch face or band.
