Because it's marked Extra and assuming it's 18K and putting no value on the Fields Provenance around $4000 to somebody who wants it. Geno

I think Geno is right on the money...although I am not sure how easy it will be to find the person who wants it. If you have Field family actual provenance it might make it worth a bit more.

How much more - as I understand it - it is still with a Field family member!

To me the that provenance adds little value, most people wouldn't even know who they are. Geno

True - I wasn't sure at first who they were.

Many Thanks to all who replied! Very Happy

I think if it had a cool Field family dedication on the cuvette it might actually make a difference...but a paper provenance doesn't do much.

If he is from Chicago - then yes.

I just learned they are looking to sell the watch now.
