    My Old Watch Collection (7 antique pieces)

    What I have here is my entire collection of pocket watches, that some have been passed from older family generations. I'm just passing on these pictures just for you to see and maybe comment on my collection.











    I have one wristwatch which I beieleve was a pocket watch and has been turned into a wrist watch.

    and 6 pocket watches varying from brands of Hamilton, Elgin, Waltham and Hampden.

    2 of the pocket watches do not have a crystal, and around 3 of them are non working (I believe its because they need cleaning and oiling)

    2 of them are 14K solid gold, some of them of gold filled and gold plated.


    I have checked each and every serial number on all lwatches and all of them proved to be authentic, according to their respective manufacturing site.


    I know that evaluating a watch is proved very difficult. However given the limited resources of these pictures and description, how much do you think the lot costs. or else, how much are you willing to pay for this lot.

    I'm not trying to sell them here because I dearly love them as my collection, however one always tries to find a rough evaluation of their belongings.

    Thanks for your kind replies in advanced!

    We do not do valuations here, sorry. Please read our sticky notes for reasons why.
    What you have would be covered by normal household insurance. You can get a book at the library such as Shugart's Complete price Guide to Watches which will help you.

    Nice collection-I like that "Henry Moser" wrist watch.

    Good collection. Is the Moser dial original or a redial?

    "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!

    I believe it has been re-dedailed. And some of the case has been re-fileld as well. That's the service that has been carried out on the Hy Moser watch.
