    Are Camy watches worth collecting?

    How hard is it to find a watchsmith for repairing Camy's?

    What do you mean by "Worth"? Collecting isn't about value as such, it's about knowledge. The real question is, why do you think you might want to collect them?

    Most of the Camy's I've seen are fairly standard watches with normal, readily available movements, so pretty much any competent watchmaker will be able to service and repair them. Keep in mind that any competent watchmaker will probably also cost you more then any given Camy watch is likely to be worth (in terms of resale value), but that tends to be the case for most vintage watches.

    There do seem to be a lot of Camy watches in 'too good to be true' condition cropping up - so I'd always be a tad wary. But - yes - straightforward as regards servicing or repairs.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    My dad left me one that's not worth restoring but I was thinking about getting one to carry on the tradition.

    The one he left me is a 25 jewel super automatic.

    There are a few on eBay but I haven't seen one I like yet.
