SOURCE: how to replace battery in men's geneve 14k gold

It is not usual to remove the crystal of a watch the replace the battery. All other watches I have come across need the back to be removed.

I suggest you take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.

SOURCE: Good morning. I am considering

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.

Learn about your watch by following these links. Hope it halps. http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/6584638 Cyma was a company name under the Tavannes umbrella of watch co. names. Founded in 1891 by Henri Sandoz (1851-1913) after 20 yrs of success at the helm of his first company, Henri Sandoz and Cie., the Tavannes Watch Co. was known for many patents and new innovations including patents and contributions for repeaters (chiming watches), pocket chronometers (highly accurate pocket watches), marine chronometers (ships clocks), chronographs, extra thin movements, hermetic (waterproof) cases, metal dials, parts of all kinds and even their own shock protection devices. By the 1920's the Tavannes Watch Co., Tacy (short for Tavannes and Cyma) Watch Co. and Cyma Watch Co. were one of Switzerland's most productive and popular manufacturer's with offices in nearly every overseas market. http://mb.nawcc.org/showthread.php?t=624 What it's worth- only the watchmaker can tell after inspection, as there are too many things to be connsidered (quality of movement and craftmenship, working order, looks, age, state of case, glass, crown, hinges, etc, etc)

What is this womens 14 k gold watch worth?


Without more information, "only what someone will pay." The name on the face, or back, should be entered into a search engine and lead you to sites which sell watches, and show you pictures for you to match against.

Find out if a watch i have is worth money


Check to see if your watch or one closely resembling it, is for sale on Ebay. This generally gives an idea of value, at least in terms of resale and value. Watches, other than Rolex and very high end types, don't have very good resale value. Of course, all of the value may be in the diamonds or 14K cases, no matter who is the maker.

Old pocket watch Waltham what year & what it is worth Serial no. 8085585 American Watch Co.


Your watch is a 1896 model, manufactured near the end of the production runs for that year. Check this link to verify Waltham Pocket Watch age, and manufacturing info:

http://www.pocketwatchsite.com/walthamserials.html

Get a copy of the "Complete Price Guide to Watches by Cooksey Shugart", and check out pricing for thousands of watches. I've found that many of the common Walthams and Elgins for that series will be valued between 75-250.00 for standard production runs. If the watch is rare and has a 14 k or 18K gold case, then the sky is the limit, depending upon condition and the actual weight of gold in the case, and/or movement.
