Hello! I have only a slight familiarity with watches, but I just inherited a Lucien Piccard watch (or so I believe it to be). I was told it would have been owned by my great aunt in the 20's or 30's, but I'm not completely certain, as that information is passed down family lore.
I have some photos of the watch, and I'd love to see if anyone has more information about this particular watch, Lucien Piccard, and if there are indicators of whether or not it is authentic. I only worry about the authenticity because the brand shown on the watch reads "Lucien Picard" with only one "c". However, the gold looks and feels authentic (I work in jewelry) and the red stones are almost certainly natural rubies. I need to check the clear stones on the hinged cover for stone-type, but they *may* be diamond. However, if they are diamond, they are an older less brilliant cut than the more modern rounds. The back of the case only reads "14K"
If anyone has any more thoughts/information on this particular watch, Lucien Piccard, and indicators of authenticity, that would be great! I'm particularly concerned about the spelling of Piccard's last name with only one c.
