    It's a nice watch, probably from the seventies.
    No valuations, but it looks a little worn on the back and that reduces value considerably.
    Regards, Bob.

    We would really need to see a movement pic to say much. They say much more than cases and dials.

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Good heavens! - what an old thread to resurrect. I am not sure how I missed this at the time (probably on holiday at that time). Anyway, the movement is by Peseux, probably a Cal. 7001 minus small seconds:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Peseux 7001

    ...which would help confirm ther earlier assessment of "early 1970s". Other than that, we can't tell you much - we don't do valuations here.

    Thank you mister Hartmuit :) So is that movement good thing to have in watch or bad?

    It's generic and therefore dirt common (although most FL movements were generic and dirt common). That lowers its value. However, it also means that there is far better access to spare parts if you ever need them. Verify the movement but if it really is a Peseux 7001 (there were a number of similar looking Peseux movements), this was made by ETA all the way up to ca. 2004 after Peseux ceased to be. In which case you should never have any spare parts problems at all! As for the absolute quality of the movement, it is a little primitive (no date, manual only, small seconds only) but its accuracy can't be faulted.
