SOURCE: If I buy a Longines 10K gold filled watch, what is

Gold filled is simply a very thin layer applied to the base metal case and will wear off over time. Solid 10K gold is an alloy that is mixed with gold throughout and will always retain it's color and never wear off. The solid 10K gold case contains a lot more gold than then the gold filled version and will cost more up front. However, the gold filled case will look awful in a year or two while the solid 10K case will last as long as you keep the watch and beyond.

SOURCE: I have an antique bulova

Hi!

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
alpug_18.jpg
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.
alpug_19.jpg
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

What is it the value (never been worn)


Bulovas are not high end luxury watches nowadays (they actually were, up to the mid-twentieth century). A modern quartz Bulova is just another mid to upper-mid level quartz wristwatch. Unless you know someone willing to spend some bucks just to have a gold and diamond watch, the value, especially with the price of gold now, may be in the metal, especially since it's 18K; the majority of gold watches are 10K or 14K. The diamonds are likely not very high quality, although they will be real. You should have a jeweler look at it. He will be able to give you an idea what the gold and the stones are worth. Unfortunately, as a watch, Bulovas just don't have much intrinsic resale value nowadays, not like a Rolex, Tag Heuer, Breitling, etc. would have.

Whats the value serial number 980512 lucien piccard


Probably not what you paid for it, sad to say. So many were made, and with the recession and the advent of a reliable timepiece in everyone's pocket anyway, the collector's market for elegant wristwatches has declined somewhat. It also varies dramatically depending on what kind of market you're selling in. Pawnbrokers, jewelers, and watch collectors all have different ideas of how to determine a piece's value. Condition and provenance also play a large part of any appraisal. I wouldn't accept less than $250 if I were you, but I wouldn't expect more than $500. In the long run, your best bet to have it keep its' value would be to keep it until it can be classified as vintage or an antique. Once most of the other Lucien Piccard watches that were made at the same time as it was have failed, been melted for gold or lost, the value will start to go up again, and if you or your family can keep it for a VERY long time indeed, then it's definitely possible to make a profit on a watch.

Need appraisal on my grandmothers old bulova watch, serial # 1518119. It has links as its bracelet and is attached to the watch on its side with clips


Without more information, such as a picture of the watch or more information about the case, it is difficult to provide a value for this item. In general, vintage fancy ladies watches (the kind that are approximately the diameter of a U.S. nickel or smaller) are not very collectible. As recently as a few years ago, these were bought and sold in bulk for only a few dollars each. In nice cosmetic condition and running properly, a Bulova ladies fancy dress watch in a steel or gold-plated case might retail for between $15-50 at an antique mall. They might sell for somewhat more at a jewelry store that stands behind the accuracy of the movement, but because the inventory of these watches is so large and demand is fairly small, prices for these watches remain much more modest than similar age men's mechanical wristwatches.
Some valuation exceptions do apply. Certain brands of watches, such as Rolex, IWC, Blancpain, and other premium brands, are worth much more than common brands like Bulova. Ladies watches with sweep second hands, as opposed to fancy watches that just have hour and minute hands, are more desirable and are also worth somewhat more than average. Also, watches in solid gold, platinum, or silver cases--or watches with diamond chips or ornate cases--are also worth at least their "melt value" as scrap metal or have an independent value as fine jewelry. All precious metal cases must be labeled; if they are not labeled on the outside of the back cover, they should have be marked on the inside of the back cover (you'll need to carefully take the movement out of its form-fitted case to see this). Be aware that "14k RGP" or "rolled gold plate" on the case means it is not solid gold. Similarly, cases that are "warranted" for 10, 15, 20, or even 30 years are also gold-plate, not solid gold.
Today, with the increase in gold prices, many people have been buying these watches to melt down the gold-plated or gold cases for their gold value, throwing out the watch movements and watch bands. This may have a long-term impact of raising the value of these watches in the long term, as this is decreasing the supply of available watches of this type (it's also frustrating to watch collectors to see the watch movements discarded, as these are valuable sources of replacement parts that are no longer made). However, tens of thousands (more likely hundreds of thousands) of these watches exist in the United States alone, so there is little likelihood that these will become scarce in the immediate future.

Replacing Batteries on Sealed Watches


Who ever told you that story about throwing it away should not be in the business of repairing watches. I have the same problem and googled Lucienpiccardusa.com. They do lifetime battery replacement and some general servicing according to your warrenty. From what I read on their web site you only pay for the shipping charges.

Hope this helps you. JFG
