You ask "what it worth" and show a watch so I guess you want to know the value of a watch. The resolution of your photo is rather bad but it looks like aBulova Accutron. You are not specifying the materiasl, presume it's not gold. Depends how old is it - yours looks like a vintage model and if in good conditin, might have some value. I can't really appreciate it's real conditiom, photo is not favoring. I guess it should worth about 100 dollars but you should take it to a jeweller or to a pawn shop and get it evaluated.
TIP: Go to ebay and browse all those Bulova Accutrons on sale, if you see some simoilar to yours.
Bulovas are not high end luxury watches nowadays (they actually were, up to the mid-twentieth century). A modern quartz Bulova is just another mid to upper-mid level quartz wristwatch. Unless you know someone willing to spend some bucks just to have a gold and diamond watch, the value, especially with the price of gold now, may be in the metal, especially since it's 18K; the majority of gold watches are 10K or 14K. The diamonds are likely not very high quality, although they will be real. You should have a jeweler look at it. He will be able to give you an idea what the gold and the stones are worth. Unfortunately, as a watch, Bulovas just don't have much intrinsic resale value nowadays, not like a Rolex, Tag Heuer, Breitling, etc. would have.
Sadly estimating a value for anything is highly subjective... to the whims of your market... (this is NOT the place)...
and for frivolities like YOUR community of interest.
Please do not fall victim to inappropriate SALES OFFERS off of this sites good reputation).
While we FIXYA volunteers simply love to opine on issues of every sort... eBay would be a VASTLY superior place to test your VALUE... or merely watch (vicariously) some AMAZING WATCHES... tributes "replicants"... and down right ridiculous knock-offs being sold (as real watches).
To attempt to fix a value... IN A NEAR TOTAL INFORMATIONAL VACUUM.. would be incredibly irresponsible... and certainly inappropriate to the purpose of this (FIXYA) site... Much more suited to a professional retailer... jeweler.
Hi....Sandra any jelery store that sells watches should be able to replace the battery for you as for value this is a quartz movement watch and does not hold a great deal of value sorry if this is a dissapointment but coleman has not been produceing pocket watches long enough to be a collectors item yet
Michael DeVito---PLEASE STOP telling people to take their Cartier to a "watch repair shop" !! If they do that instead of taking it to a Cartier shop, they will destroy the value of the watch. Once it is opened by a non-Cartier shop, Cartier will NOT stand behind it, won't even touch it and they can tell if it's been opened by someone non-Cartier trained. A 'regular' watch opening tool will damage a Cartier. And then pop goes the weasel, the watch is now worthless. Yes, they will destroy a fake that comes in their shop, and that is their right to do so; it protects the value of all those folks who have REAL Cartiers and paid big money for them. I'm sure you mean to help, but please, please stop saying "take it to a watch repair shop; you are advising these people to ruin their very valuable watches ! Anyone who has a Cartier can 'Google' Cartier website, click on U.S., then find a store near you & call them to discuss your watch. They'll be happy to help. A tune-up for your Cartier costs roughly $65.00 in a Cartier boutique, you should do that if you've bought a used one. No, I don't work for Cartier, but I own one and despise that so much bad information is out here about these watches. A genuine Cartier is not just an investment but a responsibility. Hoping this helps someone.
The repair to the winder may be only £30.00 but will the watch then work well.Parts for old Omegas can cost a premium and the watch may need a service.A service to an Omega by a good watchmaker will cost £170.00 ish and if it needs parts this will rise.
As to value if its 14ct on a bracelet the gold is worth about £12.00 a grm so if its 30g then the gold is £350/£400.00
Its hard to say what to pay without knowing if the watch works well,if it needs £200.00 spending on it the value is reduced to little more than the gold value so id weigh the watch work out a gold value and then a small amount.
If you need a repair try www.rolexrepairs.co.uk they offer a free estimate.
