    Don't you just love it.........

    When you win an auction that you don't expect to.

    Another watch for the collection which arrived this morning.

    Scrap weight in gold is 11.4 grams which at current prices in the UK is approx £138.00

    Guess what I ended up paying for a 1951 Baume 9ct gold watch...... the poor seller suggested if I didn't like it I could always throw the watch parts away and get my money back by scrapping the gold.

    It has a 15 jewel movement which I think is a variant on the FHF 34. Its running well if a little fast.... approx. 4 minutes per day currently.

    Lucky me

    Correction....

    After further research the movement is actually a FHF 170 or a later variant thereof.

    Still feeling lucky though

    Nice grab...A little service will probably put it right.

    I get it....you bid scrap value, and so that's why you don't expect to win.
