    It only has sentimental value.

    Hi like the watch. Couple of problems (new) owner might face is getting battery replaced, sometimes they just dont make them anymore. Furthermore the broken display is a deal breaker for a lot of buyers because this is unfixable, normally the whole display and IC needs replacement, that is if you can find one an somebody to fix it for you. Had big issues with a Omega albatros broke lcd, could not get that fixed either.
    Good thing is the fact you have a box, that is worth something. Missing strap is another issue, again replacment might be difficult. But overall you have the case of a very nice watch ( in decent condition?) with the box. My guesstimate would be $100,- $150,- I would be interested if you decide to sell.

    Best regrds

    I refuse to get drawn into valuations... but I have seen far nicer pieces sell for far less. There are only two markets for broken LED watches... folks who do not care if it works but are looking for a nice pristine watch to sit in their display and folks who want it for parts.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    We don't give valuations in this forum. Please read our sticky notes for reasons why.
