    What should I do with these old watches?

    Yes, I should open all of them and take a look at their movement. I still have problem opening some.



    Nice mini movement

    Out of curiosity, why did you mask the pictures of the Longines?

    What to do? If you don't want them, sell them as a lot on eBay... just describe each watch well and someone who needs/wants them will take them off your hands.

    ... or you could just send them to me "-)
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "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!

    Top center - what does the face of the Titoni look like?

    The Longines looks like a Record movement from the 70's. The dial looks in half decent shape.

    yes, as others have said, you could send them all to me, if you don't know what to do with them. I'd gladly add them to my bin of 100's that need to be fixed/restored....lol Although the wife probably wouldn't like it very much...LOL

    Nice exercise of "guess the movement"

    Longines is nice but I don't think you have to worry about anything nefarious happening by not revealing the serial number .

    This is usually done for newer or very sought after watches to help stop counterfeiters:

    Provenance (matching serial # to case # to movement # to model # gets false authentication)

    Location (watch #00001 may have been sold in USA but turns up in HKG...who what how why when?)

    Not an issue with yours.
