    I have recently taken possession of what I think are 2 vintage Gents wrist watches which I have reason to believe may be valuable and would like your opinion on if they are genuine.

    1. Omega Railmaster Co-Axial Chronometer 150m/500ft - on the back is a logo and the wording Speedmaster. On the back of the bracelet is engraved; Omega Railmaster Co-Axial Chronometer 150m/500ft. I think Stainless Steel Case and Bracelet.

    The watch is in working order, but requires cleaning and the bracelet is in need of a small repair to one of the pins.

    2. JL Jaeger LeCoultre Automatique - On the back is the wording; Jaeger LeCoultre Geneve No 10049 - Swiss made, all stainless steel Sapphire glass 10ATM.

    Again the watch is in working order, but requires cleaning and the bracelet is in need of repair.

    Could you if possible please let me have your opinion with regard to the valuation and the selling potential

    Those SpeedTerras are blatant fakes. Just had to report one to eBay.

    Value: less than nothing.

    Selling potential: zero, unless you want to risk any reputation you have.

    If you have any morals you'll destroy them.

    Dare I ask, is it possible to put them on Ebay as replicas? or not - I really don't know anything about selling anything like this

    Actually if you have any desire to further your knowledge, before you bin them, (and they DO belong there),dismantle them carefully for practice.
