The owner of my usual watch repair place asked me to check if I can find the value of a watch that he's had for a while and is thinking of selling. If you can get me some additional info about this watch or links for something similar on eBay or elsewhere in the past, I would be much obliged. I haven't found anything quite like it on eBay or Google. Maybe at least something like an exact model name would allow me or the jeweler to look it up in a collector's book. From what I understand, he wants to try selling it at his store.
- Solid gold case and bracelet. If I remember correctly, it's signed as "18k" on the caseback.
- Circa 1980's (or possibly 1970's).
- Feather (peacock) dial. I've seen a few of these kinds of Corum watches around from that era, but never with a gold bracelet. The color of the feather is something like black/green.
- Movement is hand-wound, 21 j. Includes only hour and minute hands.
- Signed 131618 (I think on movement)
- No box or papers, as far as I know. It's been owned by the watchmaker/jeweler since first being sold. A couple minor bumps/"dents" on the caseback, but otherwise excellent condition, inside and out.

EDIT: Hmm... Found THIS recently-sold watch. It's definitely very similar (Corum, solid gold case / strap), but Oval and with a slightly older serial number.
