Gatsby Dandyism Watch

Today's watch isn't anything particularly special in the looks department, but I added it to my collection because of the unusual name.

The watch is called Gatsby Dandyism, with the name written in a way to suggest that the brand is called Gatsby, and Dandyism is the name of the line of watches or the watch itself. Searching for Gatsby Dandyism doesn't get many hits apart from auction sites where the watch has been sold, so I haven't been able to find out anything about the brand.

With regards to the name, Dandyism is not a word used so much in today's society. Dandyism is either an art movement known for its excessive refinement, or it means acting like a Dandy, where a Dandy is a normally sarcastic name for someone who is well groomed up to the point of being self-absorbed.

The watch itself is a quartz analogue watch with a 3 hand dial design. It has a black face with white, easy to read numbers, and a gold and Jewel feature instead of the 12. The case is also gold coloured, and the watch has a black leather strap. There is no information at all on the back, so there are no hints as to the age or history of the watch.

For the date, my guess is early 2010s, but that is just a gut feeling.
