Recently I inherited small collection of wrist watches. There are 20+ watches in collection and brands are Tissot, Favre Leuba, Vulcain, Juvenia. I was told that watches are aprox. form period 1970-1990. Some have, I think, original straps (marked strap and buckle) and some even have price/stock tags. On top of that I got some literature and catalog. As total newb to watches I would appreciate some guidelines from experienced people. Most of collection are mechanical watches and few are battery powered. I will probably left few pieces as sentimental value and rest will be traded or sold. In literature I got I failed to find any piece from collection, in there are many pieces from same brand and with wide range of prices but not one from collection. I went to local watchmaker but he wasnt able to help me, except some vague proposal to sell him whole collection for some ridiculously little sum.
I decided to find more info about watches from collection before I do anything with them and I would be very thankful for any guidelines/information which will help me to do that.
Thank you for any help.
