    Just won this Charles Nicolet watch on Ebay.

    Got it sort of cheap for an 18k. $446. These are the sellers pics he says its probably 1940s does that look right? Its large at 35mm according to seller.

    Damn, I love that watch! 1940s to early 50s I'd guess.

    The movement is an Adolf Schild Cal. 984:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: AS 984

    The watch looks definitely 1940s or early fifties. At the same time, it looks in such good condition, I'd be a little wary. Although I have to admit that all parts are in the same state of (non-)decay which helps make it plausible.....

    Great dial - lovely watch. Solid gold watches were often kept for 'best' and only worn occasionally, so can be in great condition.

    There's an ad for sale on eBay that features this watch, or at least very similar in style and period. 1940's Vintage 1948 Nicolet Watch Co. Mid Century Modern Watches Art Print AD | eBay

    Nice ad find, very similar.
    I love the lugs in the OP's watch, that little turn at the end.
    Beautiful watch.

    Yes, very cool pieces
    The coin edge is beautifully done, we recently had a Rolex posted with a 'coin' edge, but this is nicer done.
    Enjoy

    Fantastic find, I love it! The A.S. 984 is a workhorse too, and also easy to find parts for.
