Customer Question

I received as a gift in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in 1977 a jean lassale Geneve watch. Supposedly he only made just over 300 in '76, '77. It was unique as it was only 1.2 mm thick and had famous 1200 caliber developed and built by Pierre Mathys. He equipped the rear of watch case with a sapphire glass making the '76 Lassale one of first watches with movement visible from rear. I have tried numerous times to get an appraisal and so far have had no luck. Inside has serial #929Y 17.

Hello, my name is***** reason you are having such difficulty is the rarity of the item and the location where this person worked and sold. If it was an American maker, it would be easier to value but most of these items are only located in the Saudi Arabia area and have not been looked at enough (evaluated and valued) to give a good estimate. I wish I had better news but the best thing to do with this rare an item is to take to an appraiser with a physical location (or a trusted jewler) to get a better estimate as this item would need to be visually inspected. **********What can you expect now....
