Description

The Mughal Peacock Watch was inspired by a superbly painted portrait of the future emperor Shah Jahan and his son from the period of Jahangir in the Museum's collection. The sumptuousness of court life is conveyed in the detailed depiction of the jewels they are admiring, the gilded furniture, the textiles, and, most spectacularly, the large bolster with its designs of figures and plants. The composition is further enhanced by the splendid border containing flowering plants and birds, including partridges, cranes, and the peacocks seen on this watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another good costume watch from the Met I've been buying the Met's costume jewelry watches for several years and find them to be good products. The Mughal Peacock Watch is yet another. I hope to wear it a long time. The band, which I had expected to be black or dark brown, seems to be a very dark blue, but that is only obvious in direct sun.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality ....Disappointed The watch crystal is made of plastic, not glass. The watch I received had tiny flecks of gold paint on the "crystal", same gold paint as on the bezel. It was hard to remove because the plastic crystal might scratch. Overall cheaply made. Too bad because the design is lovely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful and elegant I love this watch. The picture of the peacocks on the face is delicate. The flat finish on the gold and the little dots of shiny gold in place of numbers on the watch face make it look antique. I have gotten compliments on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely watch The Mughal Peacock watch is very pretty, the gold finish has a glow, and the band is a neutral purple and is a good fit for a small wrist. Very elegant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My husband got this for me as a gift. I love the look - very unique. Soft band that is a dark purple but still surprisingly nuetral. The only negative is that the battery died after about 2 weeks of wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simply gorgeous and very unusual I have been looking at this watch in the catalog for some time. I finally decided to buy it and am pleased that I did. It is like nothing else, and the colors are just beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even More Beautiful than I Thought I bought this as a Holiday gift for my wife and was delighted: the actual watch was even more beautiful than the photo in the online catalog. The only hitch -- and it was a minor one -- was that she needed to get a shop to punch a new hold in the watchband to fit a smaller wrist.
