    Help me about value of my watch - Alpina bumper

    I recently bought watch Alpina bumper caliber 582. I think that watch is made between 1945-1948.
    Dial, hands and mechanism are with perfect condition. Beautiful champagne color dial.
    The worst condition is the case, because in some parts removed gold plating. Luckily under gold plating is iron, not low quality brass.
    On Internet this pricing model watch are between 50 and 1300 dollars. So I'm not able to determine the actual value.
    I hope someone can help.
    I hope the pictures are clear enough.

    Hello and welcome. There's a policy against giving valuations here on the forum. You can find out about this policy here. If you look under 'Alpina cal. 582' on eBay, you'll find plenty of contradictory information (try 'completed listings', too). I think your watch is lovely, very much to my own taste. But everything really and truly is only worth what someone will pay; therefore, the actual value is what you paid for it. There are some super-high prices listed for this watch model out there, for sure. They're mainly speculative and the the higher end you mention is very high indeed; I'd suggest that those prices will not be realised.

    I did not mean to break the forum rules. I was just interested in the value of the watch, because I watch like and want to keep in your collection. I do not think this watch to sell. So because of that I want and know that detail (desire of collectors).
    I am not able to find an option on ebay 'completed listings'.
    If you can help me how to find this option.
    Thanks
    Philip
