Could you provide a bit more information on both, please, like models or serial numbers, and perhaps images as well?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Hamilton 58382 I am not sure how to send you a picture. I tried to copy and paste but it did not work. Also it is 1900 Paris not 1901
Expert:  Will replied 3 years ago.
Thank you for the update.

Based on a review of current recorded and documented sales of similar items in the past year and your description, the current market value is estimated to be from $850 to $1,500 pending condition and demand. Examples with elaborate cases, decoration, inlay or design will command the upper end of the range as the piece will have more appeal to decor and antique collectors.

Hope this helps! Best, Will
