Hello,
My name isCustomerand I would love to help. Watches were made of 10, 14 and 18k gold (and gold filled which means not gold) and these differences as well as the size of the watch and style (open face or hunting case) drastically change the price.
Please use the Add Files feature to add pictures of the watch, dial, inner case marks and the movement marks.
The serial number on a watch is on the movement (guts) and not on the case. Thank you!
