Hi all,

I hope I am posting this in the right place.

I have little to zero knowledge of watches but I found this watch on top of a bin next to a bus stop a little over a month ago.
I handed it into my local police station and was told if nobody claims it within a month I could come and collect it which is what I did today.
The watch case, strap buckle and crystal glass is broken/damaged but the movement is working perfectly.
I would basically like to know its value in its current condition should I want to sell it.

If there is any more information I need to give then please let me know.

Thanks in advance.
Danza.

They seem to go for about $4,500 - $5,000 (ish) on the grey market. The one you have is seriously damaged, I think it would cost a considerable amount to repair. Not sure who would want it in that condition (unless they wanted the movement?).

I don't know how this will affect your ultimate decision but it's a ladies watch - the model is called The Caprice.

I realise it has significant damage but wondered as the movement and dial are intact and in perfect working order if it would be possible to sell it on that basis.
Of course its value is severely affected by the damage and wouldn't expect to receive a huge sum for it but was curious on its value in its current condition.

I'm not sure about the authenticity of this one... It looks a little like a Chinese movement to me....
I thought so too, but then I looked at another website selling them (genuine ones as far as I could tell, at least the prices were up there) and the pics of the movement looked very close to the OP's pics. I did think that the engraving/detail on the watch in this thread seem a bit basic, but that could just be the 'baseline' model? I'm anything but an expert on UN watches so it's hard to tell. You would have to either get it looked at by a watchmaker to verify authenticity, or compare it with someone who owns the same or very similar model watch.
I don't think anyone could provide you with any kind of valuation sorry. Too difficult to even guess in that condition.
