Help Identifying This Special Watch Please

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I’m stumped with this watch. My gf’s grandmas watch. I cannot locate anything about it online, yet it seems a special purchase back then since it’s 24C gold plated. 

If you could ID it and perhaps give us a bit of a background? It’d be highly appreciated! 

Unfortunately I cannot post any pics yet..

The watch is a:

FC First Class Gold Crown

Swiss Quartz - 24K Gold Plated -Hardness Crystal - FC2091L

Cheers!

Hard to say without photographs, instructions are here, you will need a third party hosting site but as mentioned above plated + quartz does not imply an expensive watch with much of a background

Pictures please!

I am not sure whether "First Class Gold Crown" is a descriptor or a reference to the brand name. I have done some preliminary research but cannot find any definitive answer to your query, but if "FC2091L" is a model number then perhaps, "First Class" id the brand name. Whatever the case, we need pictures in order to start any effective search because pics will hopefully give a rough date for the watch in question.

It looks like a reasonably well made ladies watch but I haven't been able to find any reference to FC First Class watches

It's speculation but I am wondering if your girlfriend's grandmother travelled "first class" at some point in the past and this watch came as part of the package or was a memento item offered for sale? A cruise maybe?

I'm afraid a 10 micron gold plated ladies watch is practically worthless.  I've never heard of the brand either.

Not the news that you wanted to hear, I'm sure, but true.

I see. It’s not really of importance if it’s a valuable watch. Of course if it has a monetary value it’d be better :)

Any guesstimate as to the decade it was made? 

I’m going to find out, if possible, if it was a memento from a trip. 

Thank you once again!

1980's would be my guess

Really? I was under the impression it’s a lot older than that since it’s from her grandma. Maybe around the 40’s..

Thank you very much lads - I think this concludes this research. Appreciate your indulgence in my amateur knowledge. 

Cheers!

No problem, it was quite interesting nevertheless
