We're not supposed to do valuations on here. The usual advice is to look on e-Bay and other sales forums for similar watches and see what they sold for.

Weeeeeell, that's just not true...
My bad... pretty new around here, and I'm sure I've seen others say the same thing. But looking at the forum rules, it seems that WUS (i.e. owner and maybe moderators) will not offer values, but members are free to do so. So I wonder about those other threads now...

It happens a lot. For some reason, people seem to like making up rules to follow.

Wait... so we are allowed to ask/give valuations here?! I've always read here that it was not permissible. Well, we learn something new everyday.

Read our rules & guidelines, # 16

For your convenience:

16. Valuations. Watchuseek does not offer valuations, nor do we recommend trying to have your watch valued online. Assessing the value of a watch is dependent on many factors, most of which require qualified persons having access to the watch directly. While members may provide their opinions as to the value of a watch, these are purely their opinions and do not represent WUS. If you need an value for insurance purposes, contact a qualified watchmaker who is certified for this activity (this varies from country to country), an auction house or a reputable watch dealer. The Complete Price Guide to Watches by Tom Engle, Richard E. Gilbert and Cooksey Shugart, published by Tinderbox Press of Mt Pleasant, SC, USA (commonly known as "Shugart") is a recognized starting point for watch valuations, but this does not represent a recommendation to use that book as anything but a starting point in determining your watch's value. As Watchuseek is not in the business of watch valuation, we will not recommend anyone, but members may address individual requests with their own recommendations.

Unfortunately, WUS's official stance is to not give valuations. My personal guess would be something like $30-40. I'll give you $50.
