Hi, i recently came across my grandmothers old watch. i would like to know if anyone has info about it. i couldn't find ANYTHING online about it. (except coming across this forum). I'm sorry i do not have a very good photo.
It's either Gold-tone, or real gold. it's got 2 (diamond?) stones where the 12oclock should be, 1 stone at 3 o clock, 1 stone at 6 o clock, and 1 at 9 o clock. All the clock face says on it is LAFAYETTE and under the hands says QUARTZ. and between the 6 o clock stone is says THAI (stone) MOVT. the inside of the battery cover says made in Thailand. that's all i know. it's a brown leather strap (its the lighter brown like the bottom of the photo) with gold buckle and no other markings.
i'm interested to know if this is a valuable watch, or just something from any dept store. It's worn a bit, my grandmother wore it very much it seems.
I just lost her recently, and its very special to me. But aside from that , i want to know if i should keep this in a box someplace safe, or if i can wear it without worrying if parts wont ever be available if something happened to it.
Any help is appreciated. thank you very much.
