Watch Description

I would appreciate any information on the watch I received from my fathers estate. The peice works and I was going to start wearing it and wonder if I should get additional insurance. The other option is to put the watch in the lock box to give to my grandson at a later date.

What I know about the watch:

It has engraving on the back from my mother to my father in 1945

appears to be a President model

rose gold

14k gold filled case

rectangle shape

21 jewels

Thanks for any information. Bob

It is a President model but I don't recall the variant. There's a few in the database.As or value, Sorry but we don't evaluate watches. there's just too many variables to be considered. Enjoy wearing it but do get it serviced before you do and then every 3-4 years and it will still be around for your GrandSon.

Wow - ANOTHER family heirloom from the post war years. Congratulations Bob, I think these family watches really are priceless heirlooms, I hope you cherish it forever.

I agree that President "E" is the model. Thanks for sharing it with us!
