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.

I received this watch when my dad passed and after some research I think it might be a nice piece and worth something. Any information or assistance would be appreciated. The pics attached are how I received it, it has not been professionally cleaned yet. All functions work it is a manual wind watch I believe from the early 1970s.

Hi, it's the electroplated top version, so worth less than solid metals, I'd estimate it around $1500-2000 in a sale to a collector assuming good condition and only minor wear through on the plating.
