Crisp and beautiful. I have seen some 10s Walthams in cases much like this.

Let me guess -

A PS Bartlett in gilt with 13j.

I have seen many of these watches - and with cases just like yours. I also own one of these.

Virtually all of them were PSB's in Gilt. I might be wrong with the jewel count. It may have 15j instead of 13j.

Just extrapolating my observations! Very Happy

We will always be lucky to get more than the gold value for anything but the most spectacular lady's sized watches in any condition.

Here is my rule...If they were worth less than what the gold is worth now when gold was at $300 they are worth gold value now. Just because the price of gold goes up does not mean the value of gold watches...as watches goes up.

Yes. They are scarce now.

If 18K they are about $1,000. Plus or minus $200.

Sure there are Kenny. I am not saying anything bad about your case. It is really a beauty and American enamel cases are hard to find. I would never scrap it but what I am talking about is deeply chased or multi-color or ornated boxed hinge.

There exists quite a few exotic 18k 10s enamels, but the very best small size I ever saw was the "face watch"--meaning each lid side displayed a ladies profile! These are truly spectacular if crispy.

The multi color cases don't make me jump as high as they will for others, but I do agree that boxing is another level.

Wait. That is a man's point of view. Not sure woman are equally fond of masculine-looking boxed cases.

The latest in women's WW fashion are large WW in Steel or Gold with some bling.

I don't know any women interested in Pockets other than to know how much I'm spending on them. Mad
