How much is a ELGIN men's Diamond Base Metal Bezel FG007 017 PC21 Japan Movt stainless steel back wrist watch worth


probably not as much as you think it is worth. There are to many varibles to consider value. An item is only worth what another person is willing to give you for it. If you truly want its value, go have it appraised. That will cost you to get a qualified appraisal.

Need appraisal on my grandmothers old bulova watch, serial # 1518119. It has links as its bracelet and is attached to the watch on its side with clips


Without more information, such as a picture of the watch or more information about the case, it is difficult to provide a value for this item. In general, vintage fancy ladies watches (the kind that are approximately the diameter of a U.S. nickel or smaller) are not very collectible. As recently as a few years ago, these were bought and sold in bulk for only a few dollars each. In nice cosmetic condition and running properly, a Bulova ladies fancy dress watch in a steel or gold-plated case might retail for between $15-50 at an antique mall. They might sell for somewhat more at a jewelry store that stands behind the accuracy of the movement, but because the inventory of these watches is so large and demand is fairly small, prices for these watches remain much more modest than similar age men's mechanical wristwatches.
Some valuation exceptions do apply. Certain brands of watches, such as Rolex, IWC, Blancpain, and other premium brands, are worth much more than common brands like Bulova. Ladies watches with sweep second hands, as opposed to fancy watches that just have hour and minute hands, are more desirable and are also worth somewhat more than average. Also, watches in solid gold, platinum, or silver cases--or watches with diamond chips or ornate cases--are also worth at least their "melt value" as scrap metal or have an independent value as fine jewelry. All precious metal cases must be labeled; if they are not labeled on the outside of the back cover, they should have be marked on the inside of the back cover (you'll need to carefully take the movement out of its form-fitted case to see this). Be aware that "14k RGP" or "rolled gold plate" on the case means it is not solid gold. Similarly, cases that are "warranted" for 10, 15, 20, or even 30 years are also gold-plate, not solid gold.
Today, with the increase in gold prices, many people have been buying these watches to melt down the gold-plated or gold cases for their gold value, throwing out the watch movements and watch bands. This may have a long-term impact of raising the value of these watches in the long term, as this is decreasing the supply of available watches of this type (it's also frustrating to watch collectors to see the watch movements discarded, as these are valuable sources of replacement parts that are no longer made). However, tens of thousands (more likely hundreds of thousands) of these watches exist in the United States alone, so there is little likelihood that these will become scarce in the immediate future.

How to change battery on a ladies classic 18 k and steel watch with solid back


Welcome to Fixya,

Hi hope this steps will helped you in changing the battery but I just want you to remind that you have to be careful in changing the battery because it might affect the other part.


1- remove the crown by pulling away from the watch, use your thumb and index fingernail and pull , it will come out

2- remove all 5 gold bezel screws

3 - be careful,, the bezel/crystal will pry off easy

4 - be careful and remove the entire face/hands/watch guts all in one easy step,, or just turn the watch over and it will fall out

5 - small screwdriver and remove/replace battery

6 - reinstall watch guts/bezel and gold screws

7 - push crown back into watch

Thank you for using Fixya.

Setting the chronometer


They Are not settable., They just are there to replicate what the genuine looks like. The bezel is a tachamyter it is a stop watch function of the watch, but most likely your watch does not have stop watch "chrono" functionality.
