    Look what I got in the mail today!

    My first solid gold watch! 14k LeCoultre, early '50s.
    Pretty happy with it, dial has some imperfections (spots at six, wear at the center of the subsecond dial) but overall looks really great. At least it's original.. Most of these are redials

    I bought it as a fixer upper but seems to be in great nic.. Can't do much with it :(
    Well maybe a new crystal, a polish and a little service

    Not a bad watch for the money. In fact, an almost free watch at 400 bucks, considering the price of the bare metal. The case is 13 grams of 14k gold!

    A mighty fine watch.

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

    Nice one...good looking watch. Glad it ended up at a good home and not being melted for scrap.

    a fine watch you have, like you said, all needs doing is service it and a slight clean
