    Default EBEL watch value?

    Hey all,

    New to the forum, and I just wanted to start by posting a pic of an old EBEL watch I've had for a while, but never got any sort of estimate on its value. Overall condition I'd say is 7-7.5/10, and it works like a charm. Any input on what it might be worth is greatly appreciated. Oh, and the band is all solid gold.

    Thanks!

    hey, TRD - welcome to WTF!

    You have a good little wear-it-everyday watch there. Very dependable. But I'm afraid it's not that great in intrinsic value.
    The name derives from the initials of the company founder and his wife's maiden name, Eugene Blum et Levy.
    When Blum's grandson took over the company in 1971, he switched marketing strategies as well, turning EBEL into more of a luxury brand.

    Pre-1970 watches, such as yours, are selling on eBay generally for 150-200 American dollars (the eBay ads were in British Pounds). And odds are that the band is worth more than the watch.
    But I repeat: it's a great watch for your days off, puttering around in the shop, yard work, going to the grocery store, etc.

    IMO, value = scrap.

    Thanks for the input, all! This is definitely a cool looking, little watch. Unfortunately, it doesn't come close to fitting my wrist, but it looks good on the shelf :)

    There are extra-long straps available online!

    I would agree with scrap weight. You might want to keep it if you like
    Gets the shakes if no watch talk in a 24 hour period
