    The Sperina looks to have a 1 jewel Sonceboz movement http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-...Sonceboz_ES_55

    The Buler has an FHF 69 or derivative bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: FHF 69 and I'll let someone else do some of the others. Generally it is much better to post one watch at a time - all those pictures are a little overwhelming.

    I can tell you that your Mortima is a pin pallet Cattin C64 movement . First introduced in 1964.

    The DuBois has an FHF (Fabrique d'Horlogerie Fontainemelon) Cal. 123 which is originally an AV (Aurore Villeret) Ca. 120:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: FHF 123 (Aurore-Villeret 120)

    ...and the Watex has an ETA Cal. 2678 (or 2658 or 2699, depending on size and beat rate):

    Very little, a few of them practically nothing. Too generic, too common, too unreliable (without the necessary service - which I am sure you haven't had done yet!), too lacking in warranty from the seller in case anything goes wrong......

    As with most other items, you are better off using them yourself - they will give you far better service than you would get money out of them if sold.

    Watch no 4 from the top is nice. Pity the pic of the movement is blurry. What size is it?
