    Help me identify my Favre-Leuba watch

    Hi all, I got this watch in the 80s and I have no information on it. Hope the pics will help.

    The back the following numbers:
    3544 51
    21315
    11312

    I am trying to identify the model and what it might be worth. I could not find anything online. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    All what I remember is that the strap has been replaces lat 1980s

    Thanks

    Tony

    Tony, no valuations here... Anyways, why do You need to know? If You want to sell it, You might have to invest into a better camera first or find someone who can take a close-up. Or at least be more specific in the description - size, what does it say on the dial... to me it looks like a gold plated ladies watch (size would tell), I can't tell about the movemement, might even be Quartz, and it has a 20 year-old leather strap. Just this: It likely won't earn You a fortune...

    Hi. I've never seen that horseshoe shaped case design before - but I like it.

    Somebody may know better, but its quite possible that it didn't have a model name as such.

    This : FAVRE-LEUBA, une " Histoire " qui revient

    is in French. It has pictures of many FL models, but yours isn't there. I guess it must be a fairly rare example. Good luck with your search - and I hope someone else can be more helpful.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    30 x 35 - that's no ladies size .
    You might have to take it to a watchmaker to have it opened - that will render some information about the movement. At 5mm however, it is not a simple one - even if it is Quartz. It is really a shame that so little information is available on Favre Leuba.
    About the model - nothing on the dial? Anyways, I have a FL chronometer, and first thought it might be from their "harpoon" series (I also thought a whole lot of other things about it...), and finally gave up. Not each model has a "name" to it anyways.
