Paul, we don't do price valuation but your watch does have a certain value because of the gold content. In most cases we'll say it's worth what you were willing to pay for it OR it's priceless if it's a family heirloom. In terms of rarity, well, these were mass produced watches so not really so rare, although we see a lot fewer solid gold Bulova's than we see rolled or plated gold. In terms of the size, it is a man's watch but the style back then was much smaller that we see today. All men's watches were of similar size 'back then'
