Best way to check current prices / value is to go on Chrono24 and see if you can find a watch like yours, in similar condition, and around where you live.

Doing a search of the serial number showed a lot of different watches. Doing a search of the picture only was a little more specific. Doing an image and serial number search yielded this result. although this watch is not the same model as it has a date window with a cyclops glass and your watch has a day/date with no cyclops.

It's not the one you have. As I pointed out, the watch you have has a day/date complication and does not have a cyclops over the date. The watch in the picture only has a date complication with a cyclops over the date. Maybe someone who is more of an Orient expert can chime in. It doesn't look very old considering the condition it is in, if it was over 30 years old, I'd expect to see some deterioration in the gold plating.

Holy cow, it really does seem near impossible to track this
exact watch down. 😮No matter what I do, I am not finding
this watch, or even the watch in a different finish. However,
I did find watches with the 'Crystal' '21 Jewels' which look
to be from the 80's which are similar. But they don't show
a price, or what the price is.

All I can say, is to do what the guys said above honestly. (y)
Look around for similar models, and hopefully maybe find
watches which is very similar, which also gives you a price,
or price range.

Hopefully after a while, one or two will reveal themselves.
In any case, sorry I couldn't be of more help. ..Wishing you
good luck. Oh, and want to welcome you to WF too ! 🙂

😉Thank YOU for thinking just to join up, and talk with us. (y)

It really is fascinating how tough it is to find this exact watch you
have abooditktkless. And actually it is very very cool because it's
like you have a special limited edition of your very own.

I hope you keep on enjoying not only the watch, but the forum.

Have fun !
