In order to provide a reasonable appraisal, we will need at least 3 of the following:

1) A picture of your watch. This is done using the "upload" feature.
2) Model number if known.
3) The case material, Silver, Steel or Gold, etc.
4) Case diameter & overall condition.

Valuation for this JLC WWW

Hi Zaf,

Hope you are doing well.

I stumbled on a beautiful example of a JLC WWW, issued to the Australian army circa 1940s. The watch is all original - dial, hands, lume, case finish, movement, crown and even the glass.

What would be a reasonable price to pay in a private party transaction?

Thanks!

In my view, that case has been replated.

Im a new member on the forum - thanks for having me.

Im seriously considering this JLC and wanted your thoughts on its originality and opinion on its appraisal.

Info from seller:
- dial, hands and movement are all original
- movement is the manual Calibre P469A
- the watch is in 31mm size which I find surprising as I usually see these watches between 33-34mm

I have a couple more pics of the crown and the case if that helps.

Thanks for your time and help.

Where are the photos? If it's a WWW you are referring to, it doesn't sound correct what you are describing.
