    Help to identify a mystry Favre Leuba in my parents locker

    Hello Everyone

    I am new to this forum and I was happy to find a place dedicated to watch collectors.

    We found an old watch in my parents ewellery locker which is at least 30 years old. It is a Favre Leuba.
    I didn't recognize this watch maker but after some search it seems that is a respectable swiss watch maker.

    However I could not locate any information on the model of the watch.

    So I will give its description and put the photos. I hope that you can help on dating, the model information and appropriate price.

    The watch has a golden bracelet and a golden dial.
    It reads: "Favre Leuba Geneve, Harpoon. Quartz"
    The back of watch has the following numbers:
    4150-51
    766

    I appreciate your help.

    Made in the 1980s, by the looks of it. Model? All the info is right there - belongs to the Harpoon collection, and the numbers on the back are a reference number, and since the FL reference numbers have no resource to be matched with, that by extension makes the reference largely irrelevant. Not gold, just gold-plated base metal.

    Thank you mkws. Pardon my ignorance, so 4150-51 is the reference number, and 766 is the model number?
    Yes I know it wasn't gold. Probably gold-plated stainless steel.
