Either method will teach you but hands on under the watchful eye of a watchmaker would be better

Based on your description, it sounds like you might have a vintage Rotary watch. If you are able to provide the specific model number of the watch, you can use the Rotary watch database to look up the production year and other details about the watch. Additionally, if you would like to learn more about vintage watch care and maintenance, there are plenty of resources online about how to best care for your vintage watch.

What would be the value of my vintage watch?

It looks like a gold filled case and of course it's a standard wind. I would put a value on your watch if it is in running order of $100.00. This may not be what you could get for it but if it was being sold in good running condition that would be a fair price. Hope this helps, gabe.


mcdevito75 here, Many factors figure in the value of a watch, Of course you have a NAME watch Longines which helps a great deal, First, if the hands are thick, the watch is before 1969, if they are thin, anywhere after 1969, Original strap or band conts, a good, good replacement band is ok. the appearance of the watch, no scratches opr buffing, scrapping on the caseing, no scratches or cracks in the crystal (glass) of course being vintage there will be some evidence of age, and lastly time keeping, if your Longines works well keeps time all day, I estmate it"s value, anywhere from $125.00--------- $200.00. You can also check a small watch repair shop in your area or jewelery shop, they will usually give a rough estmate of value for free.
