Well, my 1960s datejust, after having an over haul, was estimated at about $1,000, and my local jeweler (a family friend), sold a similar 1980s (in original box with original parts) for about the same. (prices in USD). Mine has a yellow gold bezel, and the 1980s had a gold bezel and gold bracelet. Based on the age, I can not tell you, but I could not see that watch going for less than a grand. With that being said, I do not know how the gold (white v. yellow v. rose) effects the price, if at all, and I do not how age effects the price. I personally prefer vintage datejusts, but that is me. My recommendation is to go to a jeweler and see if you can get an estimate, or call up a jewelry store and find out how much they would sell it for. Remember that prices on a used watch very widely, and with this economy, it could be worth less than it was a few years ago. Jeweler prices are a good place to start, but they also have to pay employees, rent, the original owner or manufacturer, so their sticker prices are a bit inflated.
