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