I know nothing about the watch but I must say you are very lucky to have it.

Hi Treyman654,

How many were made
Dating: between 1990 and yesterday
Value: near zero
How many were made: sorry, no idea, but not actually important.

Wear it as long as the battery and the gold plating lasts. The watch was made for this purpose, and not for passing it to next generations.

Regards, Roland Ranfft

It's a quartz pocket watch so it was made within the last 40 years (likely within the last 20 years)

Hate to tell you this, but Ben and Roland are 100% correct. Watches like this are not that old. Or that rare. They're manufactured in their thousands in China.

Roland, you really made me laugh with your dating estimate. "Between 1990 and yesterday". Hehehehe.
