    Record watch.

    Does anyone have some info on this watch, I know that Longines ran this for a while from 1961 until 1991. What do you think about the value of this. It is probably very unique, has not seen this before.

    Regards

    Anders

    Re: Record watch.

    looks like it might be a solid gold case, that will drive the value up

    Doubtful. Record watches rarely came in solid gold cases. A caseback shot would say a lot.

    We don't give valuations here. Consult the stickies at the top of the forum page to understand why. This is a Landeron or Venus or some such movement encased in Switzerland by some assembleur for the Record company which was then the sales agent in the US for Longines. The movement will help determine value somewhat but many watches similar to this one exist. Check eBay completed listings to see what they go for...

    "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!

    Plated, and most likely 20 microns. Record didn't make any chronograph calibers so you may get lucky Anders. If it's a Longines 33x (330, 332) then you have a Valjoux 72 inside - a very nice movement as you probably know. At worst it's a Venus 188, Landeron (148, 248?), or Valjoux 773x which wouldn't be a bad thing.

    It was a clumsy question about value, should have known better. Sorry!
    You're right, Ulackfocus, it is 20 microns.
    Work is a Valjoux 7733.
    I will look at e-bay at history and see if I can find answers to what they value.

    See pictures
