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.

The dial has been restored but I like these watches, unique movement, presently undervalued to some degree because of the smallish size.

Thank you for the reply.

Whilst I do not doubt you in the slightest. A macro shot of the dial shows appreciable fading and patina. Does this indicate a restore a while ago?

Yes, it would appear to be an older restoration. I would not expect to see "Swiss Made" on a watch of that era, but just "Swiss". The print seems to have bled a little as well, whereas the print on them originally is rather sharp.

Thank you for your help so far.

It's House insurance time. Is it worth putting this on as a separate item? I cannot find another to compare value with. So, going by equivalent small cocktail Rolex etc, I would guess less than $1000? Maybe £500, about $800 tops?

Cheers
Vince

P.S. I promise shall buy your book soon. Ever thought of a .pdf version?

Maybe $1200-1400. It's still and 18k Duoplan.

.pdf version of the book is tricky as people can just email it around to themselves.

Thanks for that. I'll put $2000 on the insurance as it makes no difference to the premium.

I know what you mean re. the .pdf, silly idea, which is redundant now anyway!
