    Van Buren Watch Find

    I ran across a beautiful watch that I am interested in, but I wanted to see if anyone could give me any more information about it. I have attached some photos. I recently became interested in vintage wristwatches, but any tips as to what this is and what it might be worth would be great. Thanks in advance!

    This looks like one of the earliest of ladies wrist watches, probably even from before WWI. We don't really give valuations here but I doubt that I am sticking my neck out when saying that these watches are not that rare so they are not worth much. Especially if the movement is just a cylindre escapement calibre and the case isn't gold. In addition, yours is missing the crown and the winding stem seems to be bust. I have one or two myself which I picked up on eBay as parts of lots.
