so let's say i bought a refinished watch, where the seller claimed it's an 18k gold case. is it possible for me to verify this by going to another local jeweler to have it checked out, or how do i go about confirming his claim?

Any local jeweller should be able to test it to see if it's gold or base metal. Whether they can verify the exact proportion of gold I don't know.

Yes, any experienced jeweler should be able to test for karat weight for you.

Most should be able to just look at it and by the color and shine tell if it is 14, 18 or 22kt gold.

Also, should techincally be stamped somewhere.
