I just saw an old thread about supposedly 14K gold cases (this one was an Essex). There was a lively discussion on the thread about cases that are marked 14K but are only 14K gold-filled and not solid gold. There was also a caveat about paying solid-gold prices for gold fill. Now, I got my watch at auction, so I didn't pay solid-gold prices, but I still would like to know since I've not be able to determine the content of the watch case. It's a Fahy's case marked 14K. Is it really 14K, does anybody know?
