    Ancre Spiral Bureguet 16 Rubis Chaton 14 k gold pocket watch. value?

    On the first lid it says:
    X
    14k
    0585
    3743

    On the second lid it says the same as on the first lid exept that in stead of 3743 it says:
    223743

    Also on both of the lids there are 2 squares and inside the biggest one there is a squirrel. In the smallest I cant see what there is inside.

    On the third lid it says:Ancre Spiral Bureguet
    16 Rubis Chaton
    Balancies Champense
    Levies Visibles

    Maybe I have miss spelled some of the words, in that case just let me know.

    There are also 6 coin looking things over the text on the 3rd lid.

    It weighs : pocket watch 100 grams, chain 10 grams

    Does anyone know the value of this watch? I got it from my dad and would like to know as Im gonna counter gift him, he he.

    Well, for a start, it will be worth it's (case) weight in (14K = 58.5%) gold. Plus what the watch is worth as a timepiece. To you, that should mean: priceless (it is a family heirloom) but to any other mortal, it will be somewhat less than that. How much? Depends on the quality of what's inside. If it turns out to be a Tiffany's or Patek Philippe, it will be quite a lot but that is unlikely. The inscriptions point to an above average quality movement (compensating balance, Breguet hairspring, 16 jewels with at least on in a chaton - a gold fitting). It would be nice to see the movement but I hope you undestand that we won't be able to give an accurate appraisal of the value down to one or two dozen $$$ - there is a forum sticky explaining why.
