Customer Question

how much is the service to appraise a pocket watch?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the antiques appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: It was given to me by a friend over 20 years ago and I forgot about it . It was her husbands watch she died about 20 years ago and she was 86 years old and i just found it and was looing into to see if it is worth anything of value . Its a Waltham with a open face with glass and still fully funtional except the second hand brushes the 60 second hand both 60 second part and hour/minute both seem to work perfect
JA: Is there anything else the antiques appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: there is a slight dent on the backside of the watch

Hello,
My name isCustomerand I would love to help.
Please use the Add Files feature to add pictures of the watch, dial, inner case and the movement.
The serial number on a watch is on the movement (guts) and not on the case.

Add pictures one at a time( add one, hit send, then do the next).

Once you do, give me some time to research.

No need to sit by the computer, you will get an email when I respond.

(NOTE: I do not participate in the phone service.)
