I have inherited a rather nice watch, a Krieger. I believe the model is an Aficionado. I do not have a camera wit a macro function, so close ups are very hard. The first 3 links are to pictures I took (blurry), the fourth is to one I found on a website that is very similar, except the face of mine looks darker and greener than it, and mine doesn't have one of those hands wth the crescent thing at the end.
I am wondering a few things. First off, how would I be able to tell if its an authentic Krieger or not? I was not given any documents along with it. The back is clear so I can see inside of it, where there is a weight that spins around, I assume to wind it. Are there any tell tale markings or anything that I could check for to make sure its real. If not I'll just take it to a jeweler I guess. The second thing I am wondering about is approximately what this watch would be worth. I am not planning on selling it, but it would be nice to know. I've seen them for sale for about $2,500 on a website, but the model was slightly different than mine (i.e. Mine was a different color and looked to have more gold on it)
Honestly, I know nothing about fine watches (or any other watches for that matter) This is the most active watch forum I could find. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section.
