      Hi Nubbi

      I Found this for you

      Since about 1890, all watch cases made of gold must have the actual gold content stamped inside the case. Unless your watches have these marks, such as ".585/1000," or "U.S. Assay 14K Guaranteed," they would not be pure gold, but would be gold plated, or with a very thin gold wash to make them look like gold. This said, I have yet to see a Caravelle pocket watch in a solid gold case. Look inside the case for the marks. These watches would not have much value to watch collectors. I found that the value whould be around R2000.00-R3000.00 on the internet if one whould buy it from a collector , But I may be wrong .

      Hope this helps

      Regards

      You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely take care of it for the next generation

          Hello Luxurytime

          I like you postscript “You never actually own a Patek Philippe”.

          How true in my case!
