    We don't give valuations here- check the forum rules, it's explained in there as to why.

    The Darwil is a 1960s-1970s piece with a small wristwatch movement, and these aren't really collectible- so I doubt it's worth anything.

    Regarding the Waltham- whether it was a good deal or not, that only the resident American PW aficionados can tell you- American PWs, as much as they're quite lovely, aren't exactly my cup of tea. The Darwil... Dunno, I feel like a tenner would be too much for it.

    The Waltham is a smaller 12s pocket watch so personally, I would pay about $75 if it was running. The Darwil is not very collectible to me. I would have passed on that one. This is just my personal opinion based on what I collect.

    Yes, you overpaid, by a bunch. We've all made those mistakes when starting this hobby. Thankfully, that is not a huge sum, like somebody paying thousands for a fake rolex

    This.

    Consider it tuition. I'm sure we've all overpaid here and there, some much more than others.
