    Nothing of great monetary value, however, you have a couple of nice, vintage, swiss mechanical movement watches there. I'd bring them to a local watchmaker to see if they can clean them up at a decent price.

    If you think it too much money after the evaluation, I know there is people here that would take them from you, get them serviced/do it themselves and give them a good home, including me.

    Wow ! The last time I saw 'Trafalgar' on a watch, was on a LED watch I had circa 1977.

    I'd personally be very happy to find most of those at a garage sale. Not worth much, but with a service and a light cleaning (and a new crystal on the Trafalgar), a lot of NYC hipsters would flock to those pieces.

    I'll pay for the postage if you want to send me either (or both!) of the two in the second picture, the Timex or the Mendana.

    They are worth keeping if you would wear or otherwise enjoy them. If you are indirectly asking whether you have some hidden treasures that you can flip for a sizable sum? The answer is no although if they are complete and run they could certainly be sold on Ebay for something. Some appear to be missing crowns which indicates they were put away long ago after they stopped running. Please understand that the cost of a simple service would exceed resale value.

    If you have the original crown for that Certina pocket watch that style is becoming collectible.

    I've found that if looking at the piece on your arm or even on the dresser moves you in some way, then it is worth working on and keeping. Looks like those have a story to tell. That's worth a lot imo.

    The original poster was last on WUS in 2014. No need to respond to a 3 year old thread.

    Thanks for the heads up and I didn’t notice originally, but I didn’t intend to abuse the forum in any way. Although I see your point, I will just consider your response an opinion.
