    Help Identifying Vintage Gubelin

    I received this watch from a family friend, it belonged to her husband who passed away in the 1970's. I wound it and all the features seem to work; date, hour, minute, second, stopwatch.

    I'd like to learn more about it, but have had trouble finding any information about Gubelin watches online. I understand they're primarily in the jewelry business and sometimes partners with watchmakers.

    I'd also appreciate any advise on where to have it appraised for insurance purposes.

    Thanks!

    Nice high quality triple-date chronograph. Is it solid gold or plated?

    Gubelin is a high end jeweler (think Tiffany) who also sold branded watches that they assembled from high quality components purchased from actual manufacturers. Most likely this has a Valjoux 72c movement inside. More photos from other angles, including the inside of the case-back and of the movement, would help us provide more information.

    That is a good looking chronograph. I'd get rid of that poorly fitting metal band and put it on a nice leather strap.
    Sooner or later this band will damage the inside of the lugs.
