Customer Question
Have some antique/vintage watches...

Have some antique/vintage watches im trying to sell wanting to find out which are the most valuable?

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Ive got a quite large collection of antique/vintage watches ranging from higher end, rare, and collectables. These include but are not limited to Elgin, Ladt Elgin, Geneve, an assortment of Swiss Made, Gruen, witnaur, Benrus ... well, you get the picture lol

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

No but thanks
