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 40.00 per gramm would already give a gold value of ca. EUR 110.00. No surprise though that so many orphaned movements are circulating on the market.
