    Re: Darwil quartz

    I have seen examples of Darwil watches going back to the 1940s, but I don't think Darwil is a real manufacture. The Darwils from the 1950s used A Schild movements.
    I'm not sure if Darwil is currently active as a brand.
    Your watch looks to me like a 1980s model. It's impossible for us to give a value over the Internet that makes any sense. You might check eBay to see what 1980s model quartz is selling for.
    To be honest, so far there's not a lot of collector interest in vintage quartz unless it's really high end temperature compensated stuff.
    Maybe JohnF or Mike will have further comments.

    Hi -

    Agree 100% with Ray. Vintage quartz becomes of interest only if there is something really special, like the first of its kind, or if it is a very high end movement. I, too, have seen Darwil around, but not in any way that helps you here...

    Enjoy your watch! That's what really counts, after all...
