    Hi there.

    I'm sorry, but I don't know Sutton as a brand - and its not listed in the best databases available to us.

    Its a quartz watch in base metal by an obscure maker. As such, it was probably made no earlier than the late 1970s (earlier quartz were made by only a few well known brands) and could well be from the 80's, 90's or even more recent times as this style is still available today. As the watch does not have a solid gold case you can be fairly certain that the stones are costume quality - although it wouldn't have been a very cheap watch when new.

    We don't do valuations in here, but there is very little demand for watches of this type and its value for you is mainly sentimental.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    I've got one hit on "Sutton" registered as a trademark of "Swiss Radium & Dial Painting Co., INC., NYC" in 1936, but I'm guessing there's little or no connection to the OP's watch. This watch has an awfully large crown for a ladies watch though...

    If the gems are real, the value is the value of the gems. Unless a ladies quartz watch is from a high end maker, the do not intrinsically have much market value.

    "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!
