Just had a new battery put in, works great! The guy who owns & runs the watch repair shop is very interested in buying the watch from me -  said that he is pretty sure that they only made a few of the 14k watches like this. Not sure what to do.

Advise from a Watchmaker POV

Never sell a Vintage Watch to a Watchmaker! 

First off if you put this on ebay at a fair price or auction it will sell! 

A watchmaker will lowball you to death. Ecpecially Vintage and Rare Accutrons. 

They will offer lets say tops: $200.00 USD cash. You grab it.. 

Watchmaker sells for $800.00

Or scraps case for gold content, keeps the movement and dial and makes another Accutron out of the parts. 

Accutron is as hot if not hotter than when they first arrived on the market. They are complex, can easily break down if not properly serviced with a Watchmaker that knows accutrons. 

So start off at $500.00 and the watchmaker will run away!
