Many collector's want the watch all original, as is, as found. I prefer seeing these fully restored with new crystal, refinished dial and a fully serviced movement. That will run up the bill with your watchmaker and also push the delivery time out considerably as he will have to send the dial out for refinishing. I'd reccommend International Dial Co. if you want the dial restored.

How would I go about finding its insurance value in its present condition?

Remember, Insurance value is almost always higher than a appriased value.

There are a few on line companies that can give you and estimated value.

Admin I think your idea is sound and might just be a big break through in determining if an older watch has had a movement swap to a different movement.

"I'm learning as I go?" That's the understatement of the year! Good find! I've never found a solid gold cased watch....Bravo!

I got a solid 9K Tissot ladies in it's original box at a charity shop for one pound ninety nine pence on friday, cleaned it up and it now works. BIG score!

Are we safe to assume that this watch has been identified or is there still debate?

I'm good w/ what ever that number was, with teh S.  I have the same watch, same movement caliber and dial very similar.  I allowed a 17 year old Watch Student take it apart and put it back together at a watch service class we did...as it didn't run before.  Now it runs and stops, so she did an alright job.  The 1920's (20-23) watch I serviced at the workshop ran and stopped before I worked on it, and now it doesnt' run at all.  LOL   Shoulda had the 17 girl do mine too.   I have a half dozzen of this style/era Bulova ladies....I'll check the movement caliber against the first digit of possible model numbers to see how that pans out.   I like the "theroy" and always suspected those model numbers had a little more meaning to them then we know....
