Abstract (en)

[origin: CA2294044A1] Several watches (1.1-1.4) are assembled and interconnected by fasteners (2.12.3). The watches (1.1-1-4) have cover glasses (11.1-11.4), dials (12.1-12.4), housings (13.1-13.4), winding buttons (14.1-14.4) and hands (15.1-15.4). The fasteners (2.1-2.3) are fitted, for example, on a mount (20) containing the dials (12.1-12.4) of all the watches (1.1-1.4). The mount (20) has predetermined breaking points (3.1-3.3) with perforations and diminished cross sections between the watches (1.1-1.4), so that the watches (1.1-1.4) can be separated from each other. The arrangement, or individual watches (1.1-1.4) separated from the arrangement, can be used as fashion accessories, jewellery, pendants and many more. The design of the arrangement and of the watches (1.11.4) knows practically no bounds. The arrangement can be produced easily and at low cost, so that changing fashions can be catered for.
