#1 Post by Allbear1972 » Wed Nov 09, 2016 9:04 am

Please, please can anyone help me. i inherited this watch and when i google "Barbizon Original Watches" I get all sorts of things about rare and unique!!
It is driving me absolutely bonkers.
Any help determining value, authenticity, etc would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

The word "rare" is attached to the name Barbizon because there is a Hamilton model by that name of which there is only one known example and it's worth a small fortune. The watch in question here looks like a fashion watch from the 70's or 80's. Base metal bezel indicates lower end of quality/price scale.

Other than that, I can't help you with any details of this watch. I've never come across Barbizon as a brand name.
