    You're onto a winner with that one! Remember to take the chain off before you weigh it for the gold value. (The chain may not be 14KT)

    Actually sometimes not! Elgins with low jewel count clapped-out movements (which can't be made to work properly without spending a huge amount of money on them) do quite often come in really beautiful hand engraved cases. With really nice piercing and engraving (or sometimes even damascening) all around the worn out bushes in the top plate

    Oh, and on the same point, those chains can have a variety of uses even when not solid gold.
