    In general, that kind of damage would significantly affect value. In this case, most of the value is in the gold anyway.

    I am not asking for a valuation...but how do I determine its mark up price...without weighing the gold?

    Looks like a ladies watch so I suspect its value is largely gold value only.

    I tend to think a buyer would want to know the weight of the gold.

    We can't weigh your watch over the internet. You can buy a cheap postal scale for 10GBP on eBay. Or go next door to ask your neighbor ... most people have a scale.
