Hi and thanks for choosing us.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd like to see if I can help.
Thanks for all the information. That pretty much takes care of any question I could ask. =)
Those specs do match the serial number, so your information is accurate.
Based on my records and latest guides (like Engle's guide) of your watch specs, these watches are typically valued in the range of $100 to $250. Given that it's in excellent working condition, it should fall in the middle to high end of that range. Typcally a gold filled case adds about $50 to the value, but given that your case is worn through, it likley won't add much to the overall value.
Exact pricing will depend on the condition and where you sell it.
At an auction, you're really dependent on the audience unless you stick a reserve on your watch. They can go high or low. Plus you might have dealers in the audience, so they might try to get values lower so they can make a profit later on. So, auction prices generally fall around dealer prices.
Online markets (like Ebay) tend to go for less...sometimes as much as 25% less. Trade and shows and dealers won't offer as much.
Your best values will come from a private sale to another collector. Many specialize in vintage and antique jewelry and some will allow you to sell on consignment.
Craigslist is a worthy shot because it's free. Etsy and Amazon are turning about to be a great alternative to Ebay. Rubylane, Tias, and Cyberattic are great online stores for selling old watches and do sell worldwide.
If I can be of any further help or if you have anymore questions, don't hesitate to contact me.
I hope this helps.
