    Can you provide information on this watch?

    I acquired a family heirloom watch. Branded "Nicolet" Its an old gold pocket watch with a fisherman on the front and an engraved back. it was from my great grandfather who was born in 1915 so I am not able to give you and accurate date of when the watch was manufactured. below I have included pictures and I was curious of the

    Dating
    Value
    How many were made (if possible)

    I have spent several hours trying to find information on the watch but came up with nothing, was hoping there was a professional/enthusiast/collector here who could help me out.

    Thanks!

    I know nothing about the watch but I must say you are very lucky to have it.

    How many were made: sorry, no idea, but not actually important.

    Wear it as long as the battery and the gold plating lasts. The watch was made for this purpose, and not for passing it to next generations.

    It's a quartz pocket watch so it was made within the last 40 years (likely within the last 20 years)
    My new sig -----

    Over the years I've collected all sorts of movements and "project" watches ... mainly inexpensive vintage pieces.

    These days I've widened my gaze to include modern pieces (including quartz with analog or analog + digital displays) but with those I'm generally looking for models in solid steel cases.

    Hate to tell you this, but Ben and Roland are 100% correct. Watches like this are not that old. Or that rare. They're manufactured in their thousands in China.

    Roland, you really made me laugh with your dating estimate. "Between 1990 and yesterday". Hehehehe.
