1696: Gents Moeris Hunter, Quite Slim, ca. 1940

Gross weight 63g
Accessories: none
Case: 2304093, trademark: buffalo (G. Rau Pforzheim) - Walz-Gold-Doublé 40 Mikron, Garantie 20 Jahre - 40µm  rolled gold plated, plastic crystal, pushed bezel, hinged back, hinged dust cover, D=50mm, H=9mm
Dial: Moeris - gold plated, two-tone effect, sunk sub second, enamelled digits and markers
Movement: Moeris, 17D - calibre Moeris 17'''D, gold plated, 15 jewels, stem wind and set, Swiss lever escapement, bimetallic screw balance, Breguet hairspring
Condition: C1, D0, M1

A 3.45mm high movement was even 80 years ago no real sensation, but with Breguet hairspring it is already a bit closer. Considering that a hand set, a crystal, and three rugged lids were added, a 9mm high hunter is at least extraordinary.

The scrap value of a gilt pocketwatch case is commonly underestimated. A hunter has three lids with big areas, and actually some gold comes on the scale. Assuming here that only the outer surfaces have a 40µm thick gold layer, and the rest only 10µm,  then a fineness of 14K and a gold price of EUR 47.00 per gramm would already give a gold value of ca. EUR 129.00. No surprise though that so many orphaned movements are circulating on the market.
