I Have a Geneva Made Pga Tour Partners Club watch that needs a new band and I have not been able to find one.It is a special band and the PGA partners club says they are no longer available and were not helpful in finding a band.

There is always more value if you sell the watch complete with case, even if it is not in working order. Good watchmaker will repair it and then sell for a quite a profit. As a scrap you will get just scrap value for the gold weight itself. Most of the jewellers/shops will tell you there are no reason to repair watch and you can sell the gold case only. Do not be catched on this, as this is how they do fool people. Shop around and find the decent watchmaker - he/she will repair watch and you will be able to sell it with some profit for yourself. In watchmaking business it is reasonable to repair the watch if the cost of repair do not exceed 70% of the watch's value. Rate me, plz.

mcdevito75 here, Without seeing the watch itself, very hard to tell, the age and condition and of course how well it"s working all count towards it"s value, although GUCCI is a powerfull name in watches all the mentioned factors count toward any watches value. I would figure your Ladies GUCCI watch is valued any where between the $250.00 $350.00 range. Check with a local Jeweler in your area also, for your watches value.

You can't tell actually the date when it is manufactured by the serial number of the case metal.
However if you manage to open the backside and look in the inside there will be markings that will help in the dating of the watch.. Look at the image below for example
as soon as you open the back case there is a symbol (pointing by red arrow) that was being used that time for dating.
From the table below.
Dating at the early 50's are different. 2 digits printed on the backcase signifies the date manufactured.
L indicates 50's
M indicates 60's
N indicates 70's
so if you see a 2 digit stamped on the backcase for example is L2
then it means it is made on 1952.
You will not find this information unless there is a 2 digit on the backcase or you will find a geometric symbol inside the case of your watches.
I hope this helps
