Everyone's idea of a 'cool' watch is different of course, but this one is the coolest I'll ever own!

Nice, very nice. I'm not a Rolex fanboy per-se, but that's a very nice looking classic - and the whole point is that it means a lot to YOU.

Too many 'watch collectors' are into quantity.

Thats a nice watch, not big and gaudy. Just understated quality.

What should a President like this be worth?

In Philidephya, it's worth fiddy-dollahs. :bodidley

In reality, and by "reality" I mean a very wealthy Asian, who are the only people that really go for that, I'd say between 10k and 50k. But, that all
depends on the carat and quality in the diamonds as well as the weight, karat and maker of the bracelet/bezel and links.

Yeah, only a good guy would wear that bitch. However, I think he is selling it cheap at 9 grand. Oh, and I thought a Pres in 18k is worth 15 all day......

They are, if they're "factory" or "correct" with the gold karat weight. Remember, until the gold standard went out the window, and (I think it was Ford after Nixon's surprise) Ford repealed the laws governing the amount an individual could own all gold bracelets were 'after market' and of lower karat weight if not highly plated in the US.

It does depend on how old it is. A more recent one is of course more valuable than an older one.

If it has the "factory" bracelet it might be worth 8-10.
