    Cody does an interesting series on recovering precious metals using different chemical approaches. I have learned a lot from the videos, mostly that it is not worth the effort or expense to bother.

    Obviously very few, far less than 1 oz, even in a watch as large as the one there. And that's not pure gold either.

    Think of jewelry. Plus, there would be a lot of effort in removing the small components and trying to determine whether how much of what has a yellowish shine is really gold.

    It can be a terrible investment to buy these items. Unless you have hundreds of thousands of dollars to burn.

    Wow... sooo much gold left on it... so, buying $7000 gold watch is mostly spent on EGO..... I'd better start buying gold watches now.....no more bullion!
