    Reseda

    I've bought a used hand-winding wrist watch recently, brand name Reseda. But I could not find any information about this watch brand. Anyone has information about Reseda ? Name:  Reseda.jpg

    Hi and welcome.

    I don't know anything, but the brand is listed here:

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

    I don't own a Reseda but I have seen them come up on ebay almost always from Turkey. I suspect that Reseda was largely a regional brand sold mostly in the Near East.

    We have a Reseda ladies watch with hand winding mechanism and it is about 50 years old.
    It was sold as a Swiss watch and has got an exquisite gold band.
    Recent valuation was $10.000 and was told it could have been more if it was a known brand watch.

    Well, it should be a BIG solid gold band to be worth any where near that estimate... The market would normally value such a watch at a small multiple (1.1 to 1.5) of melt (gold value). Of course many 'valuations' are for insurance i.e. if I lost this watch, how much money would it take to buy one like it immediately. Even those valuations are usually too high.

    "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!
