    The Omega looks all good from the outside, but in order to tell whether it's fully original, a picture of the movement and the inner side of the case back will be necessary. The ladies' JLC looks like a 1950s piece in solid gold.
    We don't give valuations here, but you can quite easily find the values yourself, by checking completed eBay listings. Vintage ladies' watches sell for a fraction of the value of a men's watch by the same brand. So look up any gold ladies' JLC, and you'll have an idea of what is the watch worth. The 1950s Seamaster Calendar is not unusual either, so completed listings for these shouldn't be hard to find.
    Edit: The JLC movement is most likely a calibre 490: http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-...Coultre_490_BW

    Both watches look original and correct. As mentioned above, there is almost no market for 1950's womens "cocktail" watches. Women would prefer to wear men's watches, if they wear one at all.

    The dial on the Omega is a bit less common, but I think I've seen it before:



    You should be able to get a clover style crown through a watchmaker.

    Both nice watches.
