Hi,
My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising Antiques for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. According to the serial number your watch was made in 1903 it is called a Seaside. Your watch would sell for $100-150 at auction in good running condition. Insurance replacement value is $249.

Thanks,

Wayne
