    I inherited 2 Omega watches, one ladies Geneva, and one seamaster DeVille from my grandparents, I believe they were from the 60s, they were only worn for special occasions otherwise in cases, they are both automatic and as soon as you start picking them up, they start ticking, so I believe they are in good working order. They both have a stainless steel back that looks like it could pop off or screw off. The front around the glass face is gold or gold coloured. Both have date feature and have original box for both but no paperwork. I was wanting to find out possibly what year,model they are exactly, and how to find what they may be worth,or if anyone here can give me a ballpark type figure.. I've looked at a bunch of sites at ones that look very similar and they is such a gap in price, I still really have no clue, although I know the ladies seems to be quite a bit less and most of them have very little price difference between what persons wanted for them. I'll add photo but not sure how clear I can get them. Thanks,appreciate any help I can get.(no writing on back of casing)

    Welcome along @sandyskw

    We'd be happy to help, but ask that you help us, to help you.

    Clear in focus pictures would be a great start.

    Followed by taking the watches to a watchmaker, having them opened up, and getting the reference numbers from inside, so you know exactly what you have.

    From there, you can check eBay for sold values of the same models.

    On a side note, the fact that they run, doesn't mean that they are running correctly, and both could be very overdue a full service.

    Best

    Very hard to say much from your pictures.

    I'd hazard a guess that the ladies is worth $100-200.

    The gents looks like it could be a deville. Depending on condition it's likely worth $200-800 but condition (especially the dial is everything).
