These look intriguing, double eagle coin with a piguet movement.
There's also a quartz version. Is it work the extra $$$ for the automatic/mechanical?

Are these watches worth collecting? Are there too many on the market?

I like them but, for me, they are more novelty than serious.... but a piguet movement would make it serious!!

Hi Mike,

Although some 200 years ago 1mm high movements were made, today 1.6mm for a manual winder is regarded as awfully thin. But a similar height for a quartz movement is pretty boring, and therfore by no means a highlight when dropped into a hollow coin.

So a Piguet in a Liberty is surely collectible, but a quartz should be popped into a nickel to become interesting
