I have inherited a very pretty, but sadly damaged 9ct gold Mido watch, and I’m planning on having it restored.
Unfortunately my family don't know it's history, and the people at Mido were unable to tell me anything about it, except that it was made before 1935 based on the number stamped inside it (246380).
I haven’t managed to find a watch that fits the description in my internet searches so far, and I’d really like to make sure I get it restored appropriately, so suggestions for the right kind of strap etc would be really helpful.
The picture doesn't show it well, but the gold is a pinkish colour, and the hand has irridescent dark blue colour on it, although I'm not sure if that's due to ageing or not.
Is there anyone there who is able to assist me in identifying this watch or finding out more about it, or who can point me in the right direction?
I have attached a photo of it in the hopes that this will help - I can take photos of the inside if you want them
Any assistance is much appreciated :)
