So I came across this watch a couple days ago at a jeweler and decided to hold off until I found out more about it. I was in a hurry, so I couldn't stay as long as I wanted to ask questions and examine the watch further.
From what I'm told, the watch is from the late 50's or early 60's. I'm also told that the case is made of 14k "American" gold. From what I gathered, this is because at the time, several Longines movements were shipped to the U.S. and then cased by someone in the states. I think the casing is solid gold because it doesn't say otherwise. It jut says "14 karat gold". I asked the jeweler to send me some pictures of the watch, and they are attached below. Unfortunately, the pictures didn't turn out very clear, but it looks like the top line of the writing inside the caseback says "Longines-Wittnauer" and the 5th line says "14 karat gold".
It was priced at $575. I was hoping one or some of you guys would know a little bit more about the watch and if the price is fair. Thanks in advance!
