Here's the story. About 11 years ago while transitioning careers (used to be an automotive painter, was transitioning into technology) I was working as a tech for Best Buy. I made quite a few friends (regulars) and one was a collector/trader. He asked me to come over to his place to set up a new digital camera and scanner and do some general PC work. He had quite a few nice high end watches. A few Rolex watches and such. This was long before I knew any thing about watches (ha, like I do now. lol). Any way, he paid me with some cash and a watch. I liked it, didn't know much about it and had just had a relatively new (and expensive to me) Citizen stolen from me, so I needed one. It's a nice looking Fendi quartz. I wore it for several years, battery died and I threw it in a box. Fast forward to today. I'm getting married in a few months. Packing up my house and stumbled upon this watch in a box. I remembered him saying it wasn't a cheap watch but it wasn't worth anything like a Rolex, Omega etc... I'm just curious if it's worth anything? I'm still gonna have it cleaned up, have a new battery put in it and add a new strap and wear it. I think it's sharp looking!

I did try to look up any info about it with the numbers on the back and couldn't find anything about it. I did notice, however, that Fendi watches seem to be a fashion brand and from what I can see they aren't exactly cheap.

Any info for me? Thanks guys, I'm a WIS in training...and well...I'm learning from you guys, so. Learn me!

I finally got the case open and figured out what movement was in it. It's a Swiss V8 with 7 jewels. Decent movement? Here is a photo. It's exactly the same movement except mine also has "Fendi 4.91" etched on it.
