Your watch is battery operated hence the term "quartz" All quartz watches are battery powered. As for value I'm not sure. The manufacturer of the module (mechanism inside) is a reasonable indicator of value. If its ETA then its in the upper range. You could try seeing if Rotary have a site if so they may allow you to identify details on age etc from the stamp numbers.

Best bet here is to go to a dealer that carries that brand and seeing if they can order you a new caseback.
Or, you can look for the same model online or EBAY that is broken or in disrepair, then just scrap it for the caseback. (It is not always possible to find one, but i recommend trying as this is the least expensive way to obtain small parts).

There is always more value if you sell the watch complete with case, even if it is not in working order. Good watchmaker will repair it and then sell for a quite a profit. As a scrap you will get just scrap value for the gold weight itself. Most of the jewellers/shops will tell you there are no reason to repair watch and you can sell the gold case only. Do not be catched on this, as this is how they do fool people. Shop around and find the decent watchmaker - he/she will repair watch and you will be able to sell it with some profit for yourself. In watchmaking business it is reasonable to repair the watch if the cost of repair do not exceed 70% of the watch's value. Rate me, plz.

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.

Testimonial: "Thank you for responding to my query. I have since found out the bracelet is not white gold. Based upon your expertise, I am not pursuing this further"
SOURCE: I have an antique bulova
You can't tell actually the date when it is manufactured by the serial number of the case metal.
However if you manage to open the backside and look in the inside there will be markings that will help in the dating of the watch.. Look at the image below for example
as soon as you open the back case there is a symbol (pointing by red arrow) that was being used that time for dating.
From the table below.
Dating at the early 50's are different. 2 digits printed on the backcase signifies the date manufactured.
L indicates 50's
M indicates 60's
N indicates 70's
so if you see a 2 digit stamped on the backcase for example is L2
then it means it is made on 1952.
You will not find this information unless there is a 2 digit on the backcase or you will find a geometric symbol inside the case of your watches.
I hope this helps
