About 15 years ago I was gifted a Baume & Mercier watch by my late great uncle.
On the back of it are the following numbers
I have a letter from Baume & Mercier dated May 24th, 1971 that states the following:
1 gent's wrist watch, whitegold 18ct. engraving on the back, waterproof, automatic, calendar, black leather strap. Complete overhaul of the movement, replacement of the glass.
I have been told today that it will cost approx $100 USD to get it valued here in New Zealand.
My questions are as follows:
1) Does anyone have any further information about this model? Age etc?
2) Is it likely to be worth any real money, justifying the cost of valuation?
Obviously with a service letter from 1971, it is at least 43years old.. but I have no idea about how much older. I would appreciate any assistance.
