Beautiful Antique V & C Pocket Watch Enamel INFO?

Hi,

I have a beautiful old V & C pocket watch and would like to know some more info on it. I am planning on selling it on Ebay, unless there is a better place, and would like to know aprox. age and what style. The case appears to be 18K gold with blue enameling. The FOB  is also blue enameled but is not yellow and is not marked. Not sure if it is gold or not. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I'm not 100% sure it is original. The enameling is almost identical but the principle metal is white instead of gold like the watch itself. It does have gold integrated with the chain but the main metal is white. Thanks Alex for the date. As for hard selling it, I am selling it for a friend who is in a pinch and it is killing her to sell her mothers collections. But she has been repeatedly taken advantage of by some of the local jewelers ($3000 for a tiffany diamond tennis bracelet that her mother paid $1000 for in 1950)(3 times face value for silver coins and so on). So I am hoping to get her a little more than what they have been giving her.

note from moderator: I deleted reference to your sale as I don't want to create precendent here with people posting photos of their watches then directing the Loungers to the sale.

Very beautiful watch...

If it were mine, I would certainly have a tough time selling it. It's beautiful inside and out.
