    Default Bling watch : keep or sell dunno

    Hey guys,
    I have a watch that father passed on to me before passing away . I dont really wear it much as i feel it might be much for normal occasions but yeilds compliments like no other when i do wear it , no matter what the occasion. Chicks dig it , my buddies jock it tho some think its too gaudy . But I grew up wearing big jewelry and this to me isnt really to gaudy . Others might beg to differ . anyhow history behind it is my father purchased back in late 70's early 80's for over $25k CASH along with a ring that i have placed in the safe with other valuables. This i keep close as i like to wear it once in a great while . Its was purchased from a reputable Fred Mayer Jewelers < who i heard was like the Jacob the Jeweler of Detroit back then. Was curious if any of the jewelers here might have ever come across anything like it or seen it . It is full 14K white gold with very expensive stones not sure what the movement is but im guess it isnt too fancy . I do not have any paperwork for it as far as receipts , appraisals or GIA paperwork and was wondering if there is anyway i could go about getting some paperwork for it . I dont really trust to leave it with any of the local jewelers for fear they might try to swap out my stones and give me some BS . If i were to find out that i could get anything in the range what was paid for it i would gladly sell it or trade for something equal value but if i were to find out that i could only get couple grand out of it then would never dare sell it as I'd rather keep it for its been in the family too long and holds more sentimental value then couple grand . Anyhow , seen it sitting on my dresser and figured this would be best place to ask since ppl around here tend to like the finer things in life .

    Any comments/feedback positive or negative is welcomed .
    Some pics of it .

    I would never sell that! You would never be able to replace it.

    Agreed

    Not my style but the sentimental value is irreplaceable

    I don't think I've seen a watch quite like it - for that reason (besides the sentimental value to it) I'd say keep it.

    It looks money on your dad!!!! If you need the cash then sell it but like others are saying there may be some sentimental value there. Some people are like that and some are not. I think you would have a hard time getting a fifth of what he paid but who knows.

    thanks , yea dont think my conscience would let me be if i was to get rid of it . Thankfully I'm in a position where it can just sit and collect dust . Hopefully it stays that way for long time .lol

    wear it on special occasions, and keep it in the family.

    I am not 100% sure, but I would venture to say its a one off.

    Maybe you could come up with some kind of way to display it where it would be safe but you could get at it when you want to wear it and it would be a conversation peice all at the same time? Maybe with a pic of dad and some other memorabilia? Just thinking out loud, we had the same for my grandfather with some of his recordings and a sax that he played etc in a display.
