Hi,
I am Liene from Latvia and would love to know something more about this Louis Grisel watch, because my Dad got it from his mom, but she does not remember where did she got it our any other info about it.
Please let me help my Dad.
All I know that it is from gold, because it have gold proof numbers on it.
Serial number or something like this as well.

Maybe You can tell how old is this watch?
What do you think it is worth?

It would be more helpful if you included a good clear close up pic of the movement, case-back and the inside of the case back. Please note that we are not allowed to provide valuations here as part of the terms & conditions of this website. There is a 'pay-for' evaluation section here but they will also require the above photos i mentioned.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Stylistically, this watch could be from the mid 1930s to the mid 1950s. It appears to be rose gold, which peaked in popularity around 1940, so that might be a good starting point to estimate an age.

Mikrolisk lists several references for Louis Grisel, with the mark on your dial being registered in 1893. Some of the references indicate that Grisel marketed watches in Russia and Eastern Europe, which may explain how it made it to Latvia.

Photos of the case markings and the movement may allow us to offer more precise information.

Thank You a lot for Your answers. ;)
Here are more photos. Unfortunately I can not make better photos.


The number on back is 488080

Also maybe You can tell me the websites where I can found someone interested into this watch? Because in Latvia it is not so popular.
