I have a 18K gold with 12 diamond watch.
It is Marked Quartz, Water resistant on the face.
It is in the original case, new condition.
The battery is missing and I need to know what battery to install.
I believe the watch is quite valuable and would like to have it working.
If the serial numbers are recorded some where, that may be the best route to information on the actual watch history.
It is marked Swiss A, 9063 5020 AO, water resistant , on the back. pictures available on request. Would like to find listing for date manufactured and specifications.

You would be better off taking it to a reputable watch repairer or alternatively take some good clear photo's of all relevant markings and post them off to a site/program such as "Antiques Roadshow" they have very knowledgable and reputable people on hand and may get you the answers you seek for the cost of a stamped envelope.
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.
mcdevito75 here, Croton, a high quality watch, Best Bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change, these quartz movements can easily be destroyed with mis-handleing and anyway a battery lasts at least 1 year.
mcdevito75 here, The movement number tells all, but I would figure the yaer somewhere in the 80"s and value at $250----$350.-- Accutron very collectable watch. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area for more accurate info. Hope this hepls.
