    Lucien Piccard Vintage Watch 14k gold question

    Hi guys new to the forum. How thick would a 14 k watch with these markings be? Is this thin or thick?

    Solid 14 yellow gold case & back in high polish finish with inner markings; 56, 14k, 0.585, 141



    Is this a good movement for a vintage watch

    we can say little without pics!!!!!!!

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Good answer. I'm backing that up with the first line of my signature.

    Smells fishy, the AS 1673 in mine runs at 18K.

    That's awesome I guess that means they built a vintage modem or a vintage file storage device into the watch. It would be kind slow to use these day though.
