Its a classic 1950’s or 60’s example. Men’s watches usually sell for much more money than women’s watches but there are many factors that affect watch sales. Fontaine was a fairly obscure Swiss company and lacks the impact of such names as Rolex, Nardin, Breitling and the like. As a matter of fact the Fontaine brand will not attract the attention that a Bulova, Hamilton or Elgin definitely.Factors that will affect the exact value further are condition. Is the watch keeping correct time or is it broken? If its a nonworking watch I doubt its worth burdensome.Is it a manual wind or mechanized (Selfwinding)? Is the case made of yellow metal, chrome steel or base metal? what’s the movement (Inside mechanism of the timepiece)? as it is only a seventeen jewel movement I would imagine its not a high caliber movement and probably has perhaps no adjustments or at most one adjustment for the movement.If I assume that your watch is functional and is, as stated, A 17 jewel movement in a base metal case it might fetch between $50 and $75 although display box.Permalink Reply by Jessie McCrea on jan 16, 2010 here at 5:11pmHI wally.
