Valuation Wanted: Tintin Citime Watch from 1995

#1 · Posted: 14 Sep 2016 23:40
Found this watch in my basement the other day.
Tintin putting on his coat with Snowy at his feet. Purchase when I was in France.
Brown leather strap
Mint condition.
Limited series 1500

Found this one listed on eBay but not sure if it's an appropriate price?

I'm by no means an expert, but looking at how other Tintin watches have sold on eBay recently, this seems a very high price, to be honest (the seller is asking for US $185.00, about £140 at time of writing). Not identical, but similar, Citime watches of about the same age seem to have sold recently for somewhere in the region of £50, so that would seem to be a better off-the-cuff estimate, or at least a starting point.

The thing to do is to watch eBay for a while and monitor supply and demand - what do other watches go for?

If yours is a hotly sought after item, and there are people prepared to spend big money to get them, the one you have linked to (there is also another which popped up as a suggestion when I looked at this one) should let you know what the current "going price" is.

I recently bought 2 citime Tintin watches on ebay for £45ish for the pair. The mint condition ones go for around £50 like jock123 says though. You always put a BIN of £65 or so and see if anyone bites. Good luck!
