    Well, we don't do valuations so I suspect that extends to 'sizing' offers.

    Bear in mind servicing vintage watches of this general level is usually more costly than the value of the watch. Servicing chronographs starts at about $150 and goes up from there...

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Sorry about the valuation thing, i diddnt know. It make sence, im sure vintage guys get 'whats this worth?' all the time.

    Great advice, I learned that when I got my Mathey Tissot (late 30's) running good.

    But as you know if you like it, its worth the fix up.............who else will do it.

    Sorry for stepping around the rules, and thanks.

    You weren't the first to miss the note on valuations... and I suspect you won't be the last

    Watches are things that have personal value... it's one of their better features.
