    3 watches Are they worth being repaired?

    I have these three old watches that are in pretty rough shape. One is an Omega Seamaster, another is Endura, the last is Octo. Can anyone tell me if they are worth repairing to sell?

    As you probably suspected, the Omega may be. The other two - no way. I owned one of those Endura watches. it's a total piece of junk. 0 jewel unadjusted movement, iirc. I tossed mine in the trash, although looking at ebay perhaps I should have sold it for $50 or so.

    Honestly are any of them worth repairing to sell including the Omega? How much is that going to cost to put that into working sellable order? If they mean something to you then fix them up and wear them, if you thought you were going to buy some "Spares and repairs" Special off ebay spend a few quid getting a service and turn a profit Omega watches are all over the internet and hardly fetch big money, there are plenty of nice well looked after serviced Omega's out there if anyone wants one so people can pick and choose. A basic service of a watch these days is around £60 - £120 depending on what needs doing, then you need to clean up the dial, hands, new strap. How about you fix it up and wear it?

    How much did you figure on spending and what repairs were you going to undertake.

    Which movement is in the Omega and how old is it. Unless it is a special early model I think at best you could break even given it's condition. Just servicing the movement could cost $400 with a competent shop. The dial and hands look pretty sad in that small pic.

    you can hand polish all three of these to pretty good condition first. just a bit of polywatch or toothpaste and a microfiber cloth for the crystal, and some polishing cloth on the case.

    Its hard enough to break even on a new watch that is serviced before sale, but even the Omega you would lose big.

    Only service these if you like them and will enjoy wearing it. If you are not in love with any of them and don't care to wear them, just throw them away, or do something creative with them, like a nice paperweight inside a lucite cube.
