Hi--is this marked as gold inside the case? 14k, 18k, etc.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
no I don't see any markings stating 14k or 18k. There is no case.

I meant the frame around the watch works, sorry for the confusion...actual gold cases will be marked on the back, if gold content is included in the construction. Geneva is a well respected Swiss maker, but generally they are not considered "expensive" as with a Rolex or Omega. On the secondary market, most retail from $50 to $75 if in good working condition. Here is a link to eBay completed sales, for example--while the prices on the large auction site tend to be wholesale, in this economy it is strongly indicative of what a private seller can expect to net in a sale.
