    NEED HELP PLEASE! IS THIS WORTH FIXING?

    Hello All.

    I have been sitting on this watch for quite some time. It is a Tissot Seastar Atomatic 2841. It is still in brand new condition because it has never has been worn. The watch is sitting at the repair shop right now for a COA to get it running right again. Apparently, sitting in a box for 40 years isn't good for a watch. Haha. I want to know if it is worth investing some money in to it. What would I be able to sell it for. I apologize for the crappy pics. This was a last minute idea. It is the one on the right. Has a signed Sharkskin seawater resistant band with signed Tissot buckle as well. Thank you in advance.

    -Jeff

    You want to make money on it then I'd say no and you would make more just selling it as is and pushing the cost to someone that really wants that watch.

    What is a "COA"
    I heard of a 'CEO'

    Thanks

    Yeah, it's a gorgeous watch. It just doesn't fit in my collection any more. It is so rare. With it being fixed and still in brand new condition, I figure it has to be worth $4-500....Right?

    If you have it serviced be sure to send the paper work with the watch as so many watches are sold on eBay claiming to be serviced but turn out not to be.

    $400-$500 is Omega money. Sorry we can't say what we think it's worth.

    Well, that's just a guess on my part. I really don't have a lot info on what these watches sell for, because I can't find one with this dial and in brand new condition.

    What would a average condition one sell for.
    Termed on eBay as "minty"??
