Hello,

Please add pictures by using the Add Files feature. The serial number on a watch is on the movement (guts) and not on the case, so let me know if that is what you used as a number.

How long can I expect that it will take you to get an accurate value?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is the total cost of this transaction $38. or am I being charged additional for the waiting time? If the meter is running and there is additional cost, then I want to cancel this total transaction with no cost to me! Please advise!
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 2 years ago

I need to see pictures of the watch before I can do anything. Once I see photos, then I can have an answer for you today. There is no running meter here.
