The incabloc movement is not too expensive but it sounds like your watch is! I am not sure the movements are available for the older watches anymore, your watch will need the right measurements, so if you take it to a watchmaker they have many older parts and may have a watch movement to fit it! The picture in my profile is of a very expensive 6 ounce gold ladies watch with an incabloc movement. The watch was thought to be from Europe somewhere , it was sold for its beauty and the movement itself did not work! Hope this helps explain your problem a little better! thank you!

MY ladies Bulova has a case Number U772340 says 17 jewell also say L9 RFG ROLLED


What is the question? This sounds like a manual watch the L9 stands for the date of production. You can look this up on the internet. Google Bulova code dates. L9 is around 1970's if not mistaken. It is also rolled gold plate one of the lower end watches. Most manuals are 17 jewels, the more the jewels the higher the price and worth.

Fake or not 18kgold bulova swiss made also says 18k gold plated


it will not be a gold watch as it states gold plated
that is to say that it has a coating of gold electroplated to the base metal and will be about 2 microns thick
check with a jeweller for the fake or not.

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.

I have a C.G.Iliffe - Barrow in Furness, 18k solid gold pocket watch with sn:69043. 18k Solid gold case marked FT. This watch was presented to my great grandmother by the Transvaal Government, for her...


At that time, it was common practice that jewellers shops would have their name put on watches that they sold.
I would suggest that it's almost certainly a Swiss movement - are there any numbers or characters stamped on the movement (you might need a loupe or magnifying glass to see them)?
An 18ct case would not have been used to house a low quality movement!

Good morning. I am considering purchasing an antique omega watch: 14k white gold AA7442 562738 case serial number The movement is from the Omega watch co.. 17 jewels swiss. Serial number 23625437...


The repair to the winder may be only £30.00 but will the watch then work well.Parts for old Omegas can cost a premium and the watch may need a service.A service to an Omega by a good watchmaker will cost £170.00 ish and if it needs parts this will rise.
As to value if its 14ct on a bracelet the gold is worth about £12.00 a grm so if its 30g then the gold is £350/£400.00
Its hard to say what to pay without knowing if the watch works well,if it needs £200.00 spending on it the value is reduced to little more than the gold value so id weigh the watch work out a gold value and then a small amount.
If you need a repair try www.rolexrepairs.co.uk they offer a free estimate.
Regards

Coil shotage of Bertolucci watch


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like you need a new quartz mechanism for your expensive watch, contact your watch company online, ----- Your watches name plus.com or check with any jeweler, watch repair in any large city in India. A new quartz mechanism and work is expensive depending on the value of your watch, it may pay just to replace the watch.

Hi, I have two links for an Ebel Sportswave watch. They were taken out of the bracelet of my 6-year-old Ebel and are like the ones shown in your photograph. Let me know if you are still interested and if you are, make me an offer.
Thanks.

Bought rolex yacht masater 18k white gold on ebay


Jimmy, Put a Paypal Dispute IMMEDIATELY!!!

also go to search > advance search > get member contact info

How much did you pay? the watch is guaranteed a fake. When Fake watches are made they are all marked 18k because they do not make different parts for ones that are going to be stainless steel and ones that are going to be gold plated.

If you need help contact me directly [email protected]
