    They won't worth even 10 USD,might need more than a battery in while and the cost of repairing will make you hate watches.
    Go for mechanical pieces,if you want 'love'.
    Sverige has a wonderful heritage of vintage timepieces and a lot of skilled watchmakers who could assist you in your new endeavor.Watches are fun,hang around,read a lot,post before buying,pass by the vintage forum also.

    Advice is: never buy anything you don't know anything about

    Hey, it was only $10. Not like buying an Invicta at full MSRP.

    Vintage is one tricky part of this hobby to navigate. If you are starting out, best buy from a reputable source (even that has it own set of risk).

    If you like them it's ok it's only 10 dollars
    But if you think to make some more serious purchase just get some info first
