I own a Hamilton 923 Masterpiece Pocketwatch with these features:
18K gold, Dial E2, Watch No. R-3078, Case No. S-580910
It comes in its original stock cardboard box (light blue with a printed-on gift ribbon in dark blue) and the hard plastic inner presentation container. Both the box and container are in great condition. The watch runs fine and is in tremendous external condition with no mars, as if it was never used. It was given to me as a gift and I have not used it.
I am not a collector, know virtually nothing about watches, and want to sell this pocketwatch. I just joined this forum to start researching the answer to this question: Is this watch worth more as a watch in the hands of a collector or should it be sold for its gold content?
