Baume & Mercier Baumatic 18k Vintage 1970 with Box & Papers

Mint condition Baume & Mercier Baumatic automatic wristwatch dating to 1970. It has just had a complete service and is running perfectly. It comes with the original box and original purchase receipt. The receipt shows it was purchased from authorised Baume & Mercier dealers Morad Yousuf Behbehani in Kuwait in 1970. The original price was 100,000 Kuwaiti Dinar which is equivalent to £245, quite expensive in its day. This retailer is still in existence and are a major jewellers Kuwait. The watch is 18k solid gold. It has a total weight of 72.4g including the movement. The movement has the same value as gold, which is £32.50 per gram so scrap value of the watch is £2360. The bracelet is not stamped B&M so unsure if it is original to the watch, but it is 18k gold as carries the correct control marks. The bracelet is large and suitable for a 7.5 inch or 19cm wrist with one extension so can go another half inch longer. There is a diamond pattern on the bracelet, and when closely observed it can only be admired for the skill and craftsmanship put in to the manufacture and the finishing to create a masterful piece of work. It has the original winding crown with the B&M star logo. It’s a rare and good example of an original outstanding condition watch with original box and receipt.
