    Very cute little watch, gold weight isn't all that high but there's nothing wrong with that

    The watch is small - guess the 18K gold weight is as high as it can get, right? I like these manual vintage watches in the 1960's era. The one I bought a few weeks ago ( also 1964 - not solid gold but I ended paying more at the auction), is just great. It is extremely accurate. Amazing for an old watch.

    I think 18k is pretty soft. You have to be careful not to dent it.

    Congratulations.

    You have picked up a beautiful watch and how I wish, there are more ladies who think and behave like you. It saddens me to see, quite a good number of beautiful ladies vintage-watches going astray. I am sure not long from now, there will be lots of interest in classic ladies watches.

    Some forty years ago, the status of gents second-hand and NOS watches experienced the same fate as the vintage ladies watches of today - nobody wanted to have a second look at them and it was a social stigma to buy or worse still wear them, then.

    Today, the interest in good gents vintage-watches is growing stronger, from day to day. The same will happen to vintage ladies watches, not too long from now.

    Thank-you.

    If you can manage to 'rob' a small bank, this watch is worth a think. It is just so fabulous and they do not make watches this way, any longer. It is a classic and will never age.

    Only the inscription is a little disturbing, though.

    Thank-you.

    I do agree with you. The inscription is disturbing. LOL!

    Thanks all for your comments on my new old watch! I will be proudly wearing it as I do the other old ones. ;)
