Michael Friedberg Wrote:The approximate date of manufacture is 1978-1980 based on your case serial number.How wide is the watch in millimeters (excluding the crown). It looks like a ladies' watch, and often those were made in very limited numbers for each design. The market for those, unfortunately, is less.
Michael Friedberg Wrote:Yes, at 25mm wide it is generally considered a ladies' watch (although some men's rectangular watches are that narrow). Generally the demand for ladies' watches is minimal and they sell for less than 1000 USD, often for the value of the gold. The reason it's not exactly found in the catalogs is small production: usually special orders of a handful. If you have a jeweler take off the back you can get the movement number (which can lead here to the exact date) and often the model number.
