    Now my questions are:
    1. Is it worth buying the last one and repair it? and if so whats the maximum price i should pay for it
    2. What is the price that a Certina like the one i posted goes for? ( ofc will depend on condition i know)
    3. Is it the Times worth buying as a brand?
    4. Which one of them would u pick if u were to buy one of them? and how much would u pay for?

    Thanks a lot. I will be more active here as i got myself some vintage Russian watches.

    the only question I personally can answer is a matter of taste. i really like all the Certinas. The 2nd is my favorite. And it inspires me to go looking Certina. My two cents.

    i like that second also the most. And i was looking around some brands and Certina is really nice. However i don't know how much should that be valued at since i only dealt with tissot so far

    Yes the second one is a real looker so go for that one.

    I'd say around $100 but who knows it could be more.

    I love Timex watches but they arn't thet collectable so get it if you just want a nice looking day to day watch.

    Or it could be quite a bit less. There is a forum sticky explaining why we don't attempt valuations.

    I'd buy none of them, because I don't buy watches without having seen the movement.

    Yeah i know is a risk buying online..even by seeing pics with the movement is not the same as having in your hand. ill try ask for some more pics for the second one. anyhow there's a buyer protection and i will be paying with paypal and if is not as in the description i can ask a refund.
