    We do not give evaluations here on WUS, you will find an explanation why on our Vintage & Pocket Watches Forum (there are two stickies).

    Here's the link: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/vin...les-67379.html

    It should read WALZGOLD on the back (= gold plated). Movement should be a "Formwerk" Mauthe 1001 from the mid 50ties.

    The RW with an anchor is the trademark of the casemaker - Rodi &Wienenberger of Pforzheim, Germany - who also make watch bands. They're still going.

    Mauthe wristwatches are fairly uncommon. Mauthe was primarily a clockmaker who closed down in 1976. Google 'Mauthe' and click images and you'll mainly see clocks.

    My Mauthe is here: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/mauthe-384776.html

    If its man's watch, it will be of very modest value - but we do not attempt putting a figure on anything in here. If its a ladies watch in gold plate its value is sentimental - sadly there is virtually no demand for such watches at present.
