    Cortebert watch price estimaton (Tito engraving)

    Hi!

    I have an CORTEBERT Grand Prix Antimagnetic, Swiss made, fond acier, Inoxydable number: 9424

    It has engraved Tito (ex yugoslavia president Josip Broz Tito) and was given from him as a present to a relative of mine.

    Im just asking if you could tell me how much does this watch costs, with or without the engraving (which is a collectible)

    im attaching a pic of the watch

    We don't do valuations on this forum, please read the sticky thread that says "Read this First".

    That said, the item has essentially zero value as a watch given the poor condition of dial and case. Any value would be associated with its provenance, but it would need to be authenticated, which would probably require documentation, since anybody could put that engraving on the back. In any case, this is not the correct forum to evaluate the authenticity of the engraving.

    Probably 1950s based on the style. If your relative has documentation about the gift coming from Tito, that would probably add some value.

    I happened to find the following auction listing from 2012 of an authenticated presentation watch from Tito. However, this was a higher quality watch (an IWC), gold or gold-plated, in very good condition. The auction also included the original box, and documentation of provenance. It sold for ~1700 USD, which is more than the value of the watch alone, but not a great deal more.

    On the back it says stainless steel but the case looks to be chromed so there is something wrong there.

    The back says "FOND ACIER INOXYDABLE", which means that the case-back is SS. So it is consistent.

    Edit: This has been posted before, but let me just clarify. If the back says "STAINLESS STEEL BACK" or "FOND ACIER INOXYDABLE", instead of "STAINLESS STEEL", "ALL STAINLESS STEEL", or "ACIER INOXYDABLE", this qualification suggests that only the back is SS and that the remainder of the case is not SS.
