Trying to figure what my 1865 American Waltham 11J PS

Customer Question

Trying to figure what my 1865 American Waltham 11J PS Bartlett Civil War Era Pocket Watch Silver Case with the serial # 163,488 would be worth. Also looking at a Waltham American Watch Co. Key-wind/Key-set Pocket Watch 7J PS Bartlett Silver Case with the serial # 34,176 would be worth?
JA: I throw away my watch whenever it stops moving. Some people love fixing timepieces. Differences like that make the world go round I guess - maybe that's clockwork too. Is there anything else the Clock Technician should be aware of?
Customer: Trying to figure out what these two items are worth
