I have a 1952-1953 Longines Wittnauer Watc Co. Inc. lady's watch for sale.
Below is the following information from the watch.

Inside Back Of Watch:
Longines Wittnauer Watc Co. Inc.
Geneva Montreal K&M 18K
192158

From the mechanical section:
8844652
Seventeen 17 Jewels

The watch has K&E 18K stamped on the back of the case. On the band the stamp reads 14K and a manufacturers symbol (according to Longine's website). Around the crystal top there is 36 diamonds.
This is a very nice watch and I'm open to any offers. This watch was givin to me by a lady that I did some work for.

My digital camera is having a problem focusing so I had to scan the watch. It's not a very good scan either. However the watch is in good shape with the exception tht it doesn't keep time. I have been quoted $85 to have it repaired. The same jeweler offered me $900 for it and I turned hime down. He shouldn't have told me that it was worth $2,500 plus whatever antique value that it may have before offering me $900.

The jeweler also weighed the watch at 22.7 grams. If you take away 5 grams for the weight of the mechanics then you have 17.7 grams of mixed 18K and 14K gold.

I'm asking $1400 for the watch and you can send me a PM if your interested.
I plan on using the money to take my wife on a cruise next March which is our 10th anniversary:)

Thanks for looking!
