    We don't give valuations here. Check eBay for completed sales on similar models.

    A good place to get it appraised would be Continental Jewelers in DC. Be sure to ask for both a market and insurance valuation. I have used them in the past and their appraisals are well written and reasonably priced. There may be some value to it if the case is 14k. The Kingmatic and companion Queenmatic were very popular 50 to 60 years ago and used versions are fairly common now.

    The value of the watch is far less than the worth of owning your father's watch...

    Someone always says that, but we don't know his father well enough to know if it's true. Many fathers are wonderful; some are not.

    In most ocasions vintage watches are not worth anything, the value of restoration overweights the potential worth.
