Hi all

I just received this lovely  watch this morning. There isnt a scratch on it , the bracelet is in very good condition with no wear marks either. The auto movement is a 10AUC and is stamped L0.  The case is marked L0  and has the above serial number  . The back of the case is engraved with the initials DRT 1-24-51.

I cannot find any markings relating to whether it is gold filled or plated etc. But I think this one is for wearing.

Could anyone give me an idea whether this watch will be 10k or 14k gold filled etc. as there are no markings to indicate what it is . the reason l would like to know is for my file as I log and put details of all my watches in both a file on my pc and a book 

regards

George

Hi all

I sold this watch through ebay recently and although I used a tracked postal system the watch has some how disappeared in transportation. If any member is offered this watch or comes across it in any way I would appreciate it if they could please notify me as I had to refund buyer and in now out of pocket by $155 .

 

Thanks to everyone
