Question about Zenith Watches

1 Answer

Zenith Pocket watch, Silver, probably early 20th Century, serial no 2480917, made by Van Arcken & Co, Batavia Soerabaia. Can you give me any more information such as value? It does not work, it has no chain and I suspect the winder is not origional. The face and case are in very good condition. Regards, Bob Allen

SOURCE: American Waltham pocket watch

Ebay often has these for sale; one I also inherited in an 18K gold 'hunters case' (closes from and back) even though perfectly working after a retired jeweler brought it back to life, turned out to be more valuable for its case than anything else. I've seen similar at swap meets/flea markets in plated cases for as little as $70 and still ticking.

If you go to Wikipedia and type in "

you will see there are a number of reference documents listed. The information you look for may be in one of these.

Find a registered repair person in your area. It is very difficult if not impossible to find a value on you watch via the Internet sight unseen.


Total production: 159000
Finish: Gilded
Approx year of production: 1894

Hope this tip helps.

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 they offer a free estimate.

I suggest you take your question to the National Assoc. of Watch & Clock Collectors. You will need to register (free) before logging in and posting your question:

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:

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.
