My MIL had this watch tucked away in her archives for the past 20 years.
It’s a Baume and Mercier gold watch from the 1950s.
Since I am the only one it fits, they asked me if I want it.
I’ve been wearing it for the past few days to see if I like it. It doesn’t work.
I priced it out with some local shops. The gold is worth about $700 and the watch as a whole is probably worth around $1200.
Is this cool in a retro chic way?
At least no one else I know (under 70) has it.
Keep, hold, or sell?
