I need more info to date the watch.
Many jewelers have someone who can appraise jewelry. If they don't, ask your insurance company for a referral. Another source is Jewelers Mutual, a company that insures jewelry. They can likely tell you someone in your area who can appraise the watch.
An unofficial appraisal can most likely be made from someone in an antiques store that carries watches.
another unofficial source is to use Shugart's book, The Complete Price Guide to Watches.
