Re: Memovox E875 - acrylic glass replacement

You should see a small split on the ring if it has one. It's typically at 6:00.

Any watchmaker should be able to accommodate this request. The original part is not anything special.

Re: Memovox E875 - acrylic glass replacement

It may be the type that has a silver ring inside the crystal, if that is the case, have it fitted with one of those.

Re: Memovox E875 - acrylic glass replacement

The original glass is round plastic. Any generic crystal will look fine.

I've never seen OEM LeCoultre alarm crystals for sale.

Re: Is this a legit vintage JLC watch?

The refinished dial is worth at least 30-40% less than an original dial.

Re: Is this a legit vintage JLC watch?

Movement and case are legit, the dial as you noted appears refinished. Looks authentic to me.

Re: Baume & Mercier ladies' watch

I think on both your watches, it may have more of a "jewelry" value than a horological one. In that context, it's hard to value unless we have the weight on the metal and assessment of the quality of the stones on the B&M. I still don't think there is a ton of value there, but you have enough value ...

Re: Vintage Memovox Inquiry

They made around 17,000 no-date automatic memovoxes. I presently have 2 date ones for sale, values are similar.

Probably not honestly, unless it has sentimental value.

Re: very rare Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic E168 Amagnetic

If they have dials left, it's worth sending in, in my opinion. Even if you get a fairly big bill.
