    Help with info on this watch collection

    Hi,
    I am new here and I am not sure if I am posting this in the right section.

    I have a bunch of watches that were handed down to me a few years ago. I have never really been too interested in them but my interest has grown as of late.
    I would love to know if any of you wise people could help me identify and appraise the watches. I will give the brand name, model and ref number where available of each as well as some pictures. I have searched on Google for them but not all of them come up.

    Please let me know if you can help out.
    TIA

    Watch 1:
    Brand: Ernest Borel
    Model: ?
    Ref: ?



    Watch 2
    Brand: Omega
    Model: Constellation
    Ref: 167.015


    Watch 3

    Hi,

    nice collection!
    Omega and Tudor deserve a service. Borel and Dogma could cover service costs if sold just because they are solid gold.
    For more info movement photos are needed

    Thanks for the info.

    I am new to this so I am not sure how to open them to get to the movements. Is it something I can do or do I have to take them to a jeweller?

    Ok, I managed to get the Ernest Borel open without tools but I assume the other will need special tools to get in.
    The Dogma, just had the solid gold cover over the back but it never got me to the movement. I assume the crown will need to be removed but I dont want to fiddle in case I break something. See the below images and let me know your thoughtsName:  20190715_121110.jpg

    If you read the forum guidelines, you will see that valuations are frowned upon in the forum. As mentioned above, the Omega and Tudor are more collectible than the others, but they will all sell if you put them on eBay in auctions, which is what you should do if you are not knowledgable. If you are looking for value, use the eBay advanced search function to find recent sales of similar watches in similar value.

    Great. Thanks, this is good to know. Its amazing that these are anywhere from 80 to 50 years old and they still work perfectly. I have since contacted a watch restorer and will try get them restored over time. Thanks again for all the info
