Father's watch parts

I was recently clearing out my fathers house and I stumbled across two boxes full of watch parts, there must be 6,000-8,000 hands and nearly as many crowns. They must have been there for a while and some the labelling looks vintage, just wondering if any are worth anything or are basically redundant, any help would be appreciated.

Hopefully I have attached a few pictures.

Lots of good stuff! Many of the parts are for Swiss watches that still get repaired (from ETA, A Schild, and the like).

I'd suggest selling it off as a lot on eBay or contacting Tom at to see if he wants to make an offer. It is hard to say what it is worth.

It is hard to put a price on it. eBay may be your best outlet if you are looking to get money out of it. I personally think you might do better if you separate it into a couple lots and take good pictures of what is there.
