Customer Question

I have 2 antique pocket watches that I would like an estimated value for. The first is a 'CATOREX, '17 rubis incablock' is printed above the inlayed seconds dial at the bottom of the face, 'swiss made' underneath. It has a white face with black numbers, with smaller red 24 hour clock numbers around the clock face perimiter. It has a very nice engraved silver casing, with what appears to be a Johnny Appleseed character spreading seeds on the front, and a fairly elaborate floral engraving on the back. There is no chain. it works. The second watch is gold, 'amaryllis', '17 jewels incabloc', swiss made. It has a silvery face, the gold chain is attached, and it also works.
