Answering questions regarding what you should expect to get for your vintage watch at auction or from a dealer. You may also ask if questions regarding the authenticity of your watch here.
Forum rules
In order to provide a reasonable appraisal, we will need at least 3 of the following:

1) A picture of your watch. This is done using the "upload" feature.
2) Model number if known.
3) The case material, Silver, Steel or Gold, etc.
4) Case diameter & overall condition.

Due to the demands placed on my mailbox, I do not answer such inquires by direct mail. You must post your question here. Direct eMails regarding appraisals will be deleted and not answered.

Please note: Almost ALL the small ladies "cocktail" watches of brands such as Bulova, Gruen, Hamilton, etc., with gold trading at record prices are trading at or near scrap.

Men's Benrus Three-Star Power Reserve

This is watch has a 10K rolled-gold filled plate case with a stainless steel back. It was serviced in December 2016 and runs like a charm. It has the number 757138 above the Benrus brand on the back. I think it's 1950s or earlier. Certainly looks old, particularly the crown. It's a 30mm case, not including the crown.

I bought it for $60 or so in 2013 and I'm thinking of selling it, so I would like to get an idea of its current value. Thank you for your time!

Maybe $125-175. Hard to tell as I sort of left that market segment many years ago!

And my apologies for the other post I submitted. The subject doesn't match the content, but I didn't catch that before submitting. It was about a Mido and the subject mentioned Vulcain.
