Question about Watches
How old is it, and what did it cost
My friend, you are assuming I have some idea what you are looking at. I do not. You don't mention the make or the model for starters. You are asking a generic question for all watches ... All watches!
Ok, lecture over. Good questions get good answers. I will try to help you.
You need to find out the name of the manufacturer - Look on the face. There may be a model name listed there as well. You will need a reading glass - study the face for any information that may be printed there.
Turn the watch over. Note any markings you might find there. Name, movement number, date, serial number, any inscription you might find there.
Armed with that information, 'search' the name of the manufacturer to see if they have a web site. If so, search the website for your model. If it is not listed, send them an e-mail with all the information you have, including a picture, if possible.
As far as determining value, the best way to find value in my experience is to look at E-bay to see if your make and model is for sale there. Look for similar watches if your model is not listed. You can also look on Craig's list ('search' Craig's List). Alternatively, you could ask your jeweler for an opinion. If yours is a valuable time piece, he or she may charge you for an appraisal, which you could use for insurance purposes.
