    Hi Karl, welcome to Watchuseek. You posted in the wrong forum so I moved your question to the Vintage & Pocket Watches Forum considering that Bergana must be a vintage watch. Regarding "value" please read our stickies on this forum. As always: A picture would be very helpful.

    Sorry but we do not attempt to do valuations in this forum. Please read our sticky notes about valuation and watch identification.
    We shall attempt an identification for you if you can post pictures. A movement picture is most useful but the dial and case picture is a start.
    Bergana is not a familiar name to me. Perhaps other members may have heard of it.

    I once picked up a Bergana from the mid-sixties with an Adolf Schild AS 1951 movement. Didn't know the company was based in Germany. Even with German movements available, they still used Swiss ones.....

    Hmmm - rather a classic design. I'd be hard pressed to guess when it was made. It looks like it could be from the 1960s.

    I have seen those kinds of straps in much more recent watches... 80's or 90's would be my guess. One on the nice things about a classic design is it never goes out of style... but one of the bad things is it is much harder to date!

    If we could see the insides we could say more.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
