Back in the 70's and 80's everyone who was anyone was wearing a gold watch, remember nugget watches? Well, even though they are not really in style anymore, they are worth money. Back then, gold was only a couple hundred dollars per ounce so making a watch with a couple ounces of gold was not that expensive.
Today a watch with 2 ounces of 14k gold is worth over $1000 just in scrap value! We buy any solid gold watch, even platinum watches!
