- vintagewatchtrackworld.com – how to tell a gold watch?
I’m trying to flog a 70s quartz watch that was sold to me as gold, I think. How can I confirm this? (can’t find the receipt)
It’s a Record De Luxe, I have it apart, there are some number inside (no hallmark tho) and it’s all gold-cloured but really light/flimsy feeling.
EDIT no. is 9K375…googling reveals nowt.
2ND EDIT…9K = gold, 375 means?Posted 4 years agonickdaviesSubscriber
It’s 9ct gold, record was a Longines brand in the 70’s, mainly found in the USA. If it was sold in the UK to you new it should be hallmarked somewhere, possibly inside the case back or hidden under the strap on a lug. If your sticking it on eBay etc mention its a Longines brand as it’ll make it a bit less unknown but won’t have huge value.
Careful if you’ve taken it all apart as far as taking the back off, thin gold watches like that become brittle with age due to the high zinc content of the metal to give hardness.Posted 4 years ago
