Answering questions regarding what you should expect to get for your vintage watch at auction or from a dealer. You may also ask if questions regarding the authenticity of your watch here.

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.

Due to the demands placed on my mailbox, I do not answer such inquires by direct mail. You must post your question here. Direct eMails regarding appraisals will be deleted and not answered.

Please note: Almost ALL the small ladies "cocktail" watches of brands such as Bulova, Gruen, Hamilton, etc., with gold trading at record prices are trading at or near scrap.

JLC Mark 11 Questions

Post by jeagerfan1960 » Mon Mar 16, 2020 5:19 pm

Hello everyone,

I’ve recently obtained a JLC watch which after some research, I have discovered that it is a mark 11 model.
The stamp on the back has 6/b 346 and 2181/48.
I passed on this information to a vintage watch expert.
According to him, the hands are not original to the watch as they are the cathedral style hands and that they have been replaced as a 6b/346 should have squared edges to the hands. Also, he said that the second hand should not be lollipop shaped and also square - plus it should be white.

Due to this, he suggested a price he’d be willing to buy if for which is lower than I anticipated.

I have found a JLC watch with cathedral style hands online and I understand there were different variations of hands.

Please could someone who has knowledge of these watches lend a hand and give their assumptions?

Thanks for your help.

Neither assumption is correct.
