    Default Can someone tell me what model is this Longines?

    All I know is that it is a 24k gold watch... My father bought it in an antique shop long time ago in it's original box but it does not say anything on the box or the back of the watch!
    Here are the pics!

    And it would be great if someone can roughly estimate how much it's worth!

    Welcome! It can't be 24ct - that's too soft. It will be either 14ct or 18ct and should have a marking on the case somewhere. It's a manual wind which has (in order of probability) a caliber 30L, 23Z, or 370 inside. A picture of the inside of the caseback and movement will tell what year it's from, but it was definitely made between 1957 and 1971 with the early/mid 60's being the best bet.

    well i have another 18ct gold quartz old longines and the gold is very diferent from this one, it much brighter... this is much softer and darker in color so i'm sure its not 18ct... the mark on the back of the case is small and unreadable (probably because of the softness of the gold), but i may be mistaken on that part... i'm going to take it to my local longines service so i can take a look inside... hope they can identify the mechanism and i will post pics here shortly...
    I hope when i find out what mechanism is inside you could help me estimate the value of it...
    Thank you for your help!
