      Clearly it's a bit difficult to know what to say.........

      I suspect where Mae West is concerned the comment would end with something like, "or are you enjoying the show?"

        Or ''I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond.''

          Hi!


          It would be interesting to see a movement shot.
          Though I canīt see any reason to doubt that the movement inside that jewelry watch is from Rado.
          Schlup & Co sold a lot to watchmakers and jewellers in the USA at that time and we meanwhile know that
          the brandname RADO was used at least from 1929 on, 9 years before the Rado Watch Company was
          founded as subsidiary of Schlup & Co..
          And the watch is marked "Swiss".

          BTW, is it correct to talk about an "Edwardian Era"?
          Edward had been king for just a few months in 1936 - a little bit short for an "era", isnīt it?
          But clearly itīs the Art Deco style of the 1930s, so 1936 could fit.
