Question about Vintage Watches
Posted by Jack Newsom on
SOURCE: I have lost the back of a gold ladies Geneve watch
Best bet here is to go to a dealer that carries that brand and seeing if they can order you a new caseback.
Or, you can look for the same model online or EBAY that is broken or in disrepair, then just scrap it for the caseback. (It is not always possible to find one, but i recommend trying as this is the least expensive way to obtain small parts).

SOURCE: what is the worth of a bulova accutron 14kt gold
mcdevito75 here, Bulova Accutron, nice watch, of course there are many, many factors that go into the value of any watch, depending on Maker, Model, Condition of the watch also. I would figure your Bulova Accutron is in the area of $125.00------- $200.00 range. Your best bet is to find a jeweler in your area or an appraiser, even online for the latest value of your watch.

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

SOURCE: I need a valuation on
Hello there, the serial number on a Movado watch is usually unique to
each watch and therefore a watch cannot be identified by that. Here is a
picture of all the gold ladies Movado watches which are presently
available. I have numbered them 1 - 8 accordingly.
1 and 2 are both tagged the Amorosa and are valued at $895 and $1395 respectively.
3 and 4 are both tagged the Concerto and are valued at $2495 and $1495 respectively.
5 and 6 are both tagged the Bellamoda and are valued at $1495 and $1095 respectively.
7 is the Harmony and is valued at $895
8 is the Rondiro and is valued at $1495
If your watch is not on the list above then you might want to send it to the nearest Movado authorised dealer to confirm if it is original or a knock off.
Hope this support has been helpful?
