Hello you all,

For a collegue of mine I am trying to get more info about the value of a Ladies wrist watch which is made with White Gold and a lot of diamonds.
I Asked the Longines Support for more info and received the answer below.

Thank you for your message and the information provided.

Perhaps it helps to post some pics of this special and tiny watch so one of you can inform me about an estimated list price at the time:biggrin:









Hope someone can tell me more about it.

Hi, Benedict....since you actually have the watch, take it to a real jeweler! He has a scale for weighing the white gold, and frankly, we don't know doodley-squat about appraising diamonds. You can just say something like 'you want to know how much to insure it for'.
There may be someone here who could tell you about the watch's movement if we saw it, but being a Lady's watch, it would have no collector interest unless you just happened to stumble across someone who specialized in lady's watches...and I don't know of anyone off hand.

For a small fee you can have it appraised over at the NAWCC site. How accurate any appraisal will be is only educated guesswork. While the jeweler can confirm that those 'diamonds' are real along with the quality of those 'diamonds', in my experience most appraisals of jewelry made by jewelers "for insurance purposes" are grossly inflated just to make the owner feel better about the item and reduce the risk of the jeweler being accused of (or sued for) undervaluing an item.
