    Thread moved.
    WatchUSeek does not offer valuations, nor do we recommend trying to have your watch valued online. Assessing the value of a watch is dependent on many factors, most of which require qualified persons having access to the watch directly. While members may provide their opinions as to the value of a watch, these are purely their opinions. If you need an value for insurance purposes, contact a qualified watchmaker who is certified for this activity (this varies from country to country), an auction house or a reputable watch dealer. The Complete Price Guide to Watches by Tom Engle, Richard E. Gilbert and Cooksey Shugart, published by Tinderbox Press of Mt Pleasant, SC, USA (commonly known as “Shugart”) is a recognized starting point for watch valuations, but this does not represent a recommendation to use that book as anything but a starting point in determining your watch’s value. As WatchUSeek is not in the business of watch valuation, we will not recommend anyone, but members may address individual requests with their own recommendations.
    Kind regards

    Look up completed sold items on eBay for Mido Ocean Star.

    There is not a lot of value here unfortunately. There are a couple of recent eBay sales of similar style Ocean Stars in the $50-$80 range. However, the OP's watch looks like it has a mismatched bracelet so I think you would be lucky to get $50, and that's assuming it's fully functional.

    Found this one....only one that is similar. But by no means consider it a rare watch. This was a mass produced in large numbers watch and this shape is just a style of the times.
