    Some old watches

    Hi yall, its been a while since I posted anything on here. Normally find common stuff that everyone else finds but today was a little different. Went to a community sale. And tried to scurry around as quick as possible. Came to one table and has my buddy was buying an old nice waltham watch I asked if he had any other watches and he said just one on his wrist. Never seen a stainless jager leCoultre but bought it with the original box. Its a lil scratched on the dial up by 3.

    Then found a bag of watches for $1 each. They were mostly junk. But at the bottom was a zenith. Turns out has a 18k gold case. Any help on the serial number to date it would be a great help! I think 1918 but wanted another opinion. It is working.

    Thank you all in advance!

    Awesome scores. 1918 seems fitting for the zenith. The JLC is the prize

    The zenith only runs with the case open. Not sure why that is.

    The balance wheel is making contact with the case when closed. Very common issue. The case is slightly tweaked

    Try cleaning the crud out of the hinge and rim of the case and cover. This may be enough to stop the flex when closed

    Awesome scores BK! The Jager LeCoultre is worth a very pretty penny and the Zenith is as well if cleaned and restored. The JLC will likely fetch $800+ but probably no less than $600. The Zenith if cleaned, restored and in great running condition may fetch more than the JLC, especially if the manufacturing date is confirmed.

    Ill give you 800 based on the pictures alone. I was thinking the day date HPG of this vintage is more in the 2 to 3K range

    Haha. I didnt know about the zenith. I found out later it was gold. Half a day after i bought it. The jlc was a surprise seeing I bought a baume & mercer for a $1 at the same stop for a $1. But it was fake. Very rarely do I buy things the owner is wearing. This one was a surprise! The owner had 3 junk seiko ones. (90s quartz, batteries never removed) I wasn’t expecting this one!

    Have to ask, quote “ do you have any watches you dont wear anymore?” Not old watches ,, then they think like antique. But just any watches. Have one on and point to it when you ask. Seems to work well, have seen some crazy expensive rolex, tag huer and a solid18k the guy wanted $7,000 for! Thats my best tip.

    These are from that question: this last 4 months
    (That i kept)

    Thanks Beach! I always say “old watches” and never thought to say just “watches”!
