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.

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.

I need a valuation on a ladies gold movado watch. Serial number A63165


Hello there, the serial number on a Movado watch is usually unique to each watch and therefore a watch cannot be identified by that. Here is a picture of all the gold ladies Movado watches which are presently available. I have numbered them 1 - 8 accordingly.

rockmeister_21.jpg

1 and 2 are both tagged the Amorosa and are valued at $895 and $1395 respectively.
3 and 4 are both tagged the Concerto and are valued at $2495 and $1495 respectively.
5 and 6 are both tagged the Bellamoda and are valued at $1495 and $1095 respectively.
7 is the Harmony and is valued at $895
8 is the Rondiro and is valued at $1495
If your watch is not on the list above then you might want to send it to the nearest Movado authorised dealer to confirm if it is original or a knock off.
Hope this support has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa

Need appraisal on my grandmothers old bulova watch, serial # 1518119. It has links as its bracelet and is attached to the watch on its side with clips


Without more information, such as a picture of the watch or more information about the case, it is difficult to provide a value for this item. In general, vintage fancy ladies watches (the kind that are approximately the diameter of a U.S. nickel or smaller) are not very collectible. As recently as a few years ago, these were bought and sold in bulk for only a few dollars each. In nice cosmetic condition and running properly, a Bulova ladies fancy dress watch in a steel or gold-plated case might retail for between $15-50 at an antique mall. They might sell for somewhat more at a jewelry store that stands behind the accuracy of the movement, but because the inventory of these watches is so large and demand is fairly small, prices for these watches remain much more modest than similar age men's mechanical wristwatches.
Some valuation exceptions do apply. Certain brands of watches, such as Rolex, IWC, Blancpain, and other premium brands, are worth much more than common brands like Bulova. Ladies watches with sweep second hands, as opposed to fancy watches that just have hour and minute hands, are more desirable and are also worth somewhat more than average. Also, watches in solid gold, platinum, or silver cases--or watches with diamond chips or ornate cases--are also worth at least their "melt value" as scrap metal or have an independent value as fine jewelry. All precious metal cases must be labeled; if they are not labeled on the outside of the back cover, they should have be marked on the inside of the back cover (you'll need to carefully take the movement out of its form-fitted case to see this). Be aware that "14k RGP" or "rolled gold plate" on the case means it is not solid gold. Similarly, cases that are "warranted" for 10, 15, 20, or even 30 years are also gold-plate, not solid gold.
Today, with the increase in gold prices, many people have been buying these watches to melt down the gold-plated or gold cases for their gold value, throwing out the watch movements and watch bands. This may have a long-term impact of raising the value of these watches in the long term, as this is decreasing the supply of available watches of this type (it's also frustrating to watch collectors to see the watch movements discarded, as these are valuable sources of replacement parts that are no longer made). However, tens of thousands (more likely hundreds of thousands) of these watches exist in the United States alone, so there is little likelihood that these will become scarce in the immediate future.

I WOULD LIKE TO ITS TRUE VALUE


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.

I have lost the back of a gold ladies geneve watch. can I get a replacement back? Gold case, white dial with black clear numbers , gold brick link type bracelet. 9ct.Quartz model.


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).
