1960 -14K white gold "La Petite" with 1959 (L9) movement. Featured in 1st 1960 ad, shown with 12 diamond watch and cord band $195. This one has a 14K band with 16 diamonds in it, no other markings that I see. Total of 28 diamonds! I consider myself real lucky to have had a chance to pick this up. With the add on band, it had to sell in 1960 for around $300+ and there could not have been that many sold at that time. This was sold as scrap at a friendly shop I know and he called me with this and two others. Thank God he doesn't like to melt beauty!

That is a Beauty Terry!

Nice to know that this watch will not be melted for scrap...too many are lately and because they are, the value will be more that just scrap in the years to come.

Thanks OldTicker!

I really like picking up the ladies! I have 20-30 now, and three 14K ones, all with diamonds, but this is by far the nicest. I will put the others on once I find their names.

Hi shooter144,

I may put some on, but I like looking for them too.

Gorgeous watch. I joined very recently and spent hours on this website the last few days. It is very helpful and I gained a lot of information already.
