    Appraisal Transcript:
    GUEST: I bought the watch 20, 25 years ago at an estate sale. I bought it because I thought it was so unusual with the portrait on it.

    APPRAISER: And you had paid how much?

    GUEST: 100 dollars.

    APPRAISER: The watch happens to be called a "minute repeater." In the market we're in now, a minute repeater in gold in this size from the turn of the century would probably bring, in the retail world, somewhere in the $4,000 price range.

    GUEST: Amazing!

    APPRAISER: (laughing) A heck of a good find, right?!

    GUEST: Whoa!
