Thank you for your question. It is my pleasure to assist you.

It would be most helpful if I could see a photo of the front and back of the watch.

Also, if you open the back so that you can see the works of the watch is there any text, if so can you please tell me what it says?

Does the watch function?

Here are ways to get photos to me -


Go to http://tinypic.com

1. Click "Computer".
2. Double click the image you want to upload.
3. Click "Start Upload".
4. When the image appears on your screen, just copy the link from that page and paste it on this page.
OR

You can email photos to [email protected] with my name, "Michelle in antiques and appraisals" and they will be forwarded to me. It can take several hours for me to get the photos depending upon how busy the site is. It is important for you to send the email from the address with which you registered at Just Answer. If you are sending them from a phone, you must put the original email address in the text.

Thank you, Michelle

Except mine has:


 


-roman number, on the top


-12 hours instead of 24

Hello,

My name is Alan and I have been asked to assist you Etienne!

I am a Certified & Licensed Insurance Adjuster, Accredited AOA Appraiser, and an IRS Qualified Appraiser. It will be my pleasure to put my expertise, libraries & resources, and experience in the field to work for you.

I appreciate your patience while I conducted my research and prepared this answer for you. I saw that you needed a value and assumed it was Market Value; the most up-to-date price range to expect if sold today. This is estimated using the prices that buyers have recently paid and sellers have accepted in the open and competitive market.

Searching auction house records and library databases provided recent sales results of qualified market comparable items. Using these I was able to determine the average market value minimum and maximum for you.

These recent completed sales gave your Ancre Ligne Droite Remontoir pocketwatch a current market value of $300 - $600.
As always, the price you are able to sell for may vary depending on venue, condition, market variances, and more.

I would recommend a starting asking price of $700 so that you can reduce if necessary since Market Value represents what someone was willing to pay for an asset, not the amount it was offered for. Please let me know if you would like Insurance value as well.
Please let me know if this is the information you were looking for and reply with any questions now or any time in the future. If you are satisfied, please let me know by rating my answer for my compensation and to close out the question. Thank you kindly Etienne.

I try to always provide Excellent Service, so if you have any other items, just say Hello Alan at the beginning of your new question. Thank you again!

Sincerely,

Appraiser Alan
