I have a Lip Nautic ski electronic new  ( :blink: ) 

The watch does not work .  I believe the movement need to be replace.

There is also an issue with the dial. the color is peeling.

Is it worth to repair? Or shall I try to sell it for parts ( the glass and frame are like new. also the bracelet is original)

Thanks for your advice. 

Have a great day

As it is I would say if you sold it complete it would be worth around £100-£150 one sold recently in non working condition for £192.00 but that had a much better condition dial.

complete working movements lip calibre r184 can be found for around £90.00  so it is repairable, the biggest problem is the condition of the dial to have that redone would be at least £100.00 plus, 

Good working examples of this model go any where between £250.00 to £350.

They are sort after but earlier examples fetch the highest prices £400-£600.

If you like the watch and want to keep it the most it will cost you  if it requires it is the cost of a movement and live with the dial as is, I dont think breaking it up would realise any more money than selling it whole.

Thanks for your reply.

I think i am probably sell it as it is. ( it is not part of my favorit watch as the movement is electronic) I don't think it is worth it to do all the effort to get it back to the new condition.

Do you know any web site beside e-bay for selling watches?

Thanks again.

regards.

    • Yes, I think the Angus is the newer and larger of the 2 styles of jubilee that strapcode sell. Thought it best to go for that due to the height of the marathon watch.  Good find to get them from an auction. The marathon straps are quite nice. I have a neutral one (no seal or maple leaf).
    • Hi All,  Thanks for getting back to me and thanks to Old Hippy for the link and Stuart ad Rogart63 for the info..I was not expecting to have to buy a unit to fit, just fit a new pin, and yes is a modern one, but that is a great idea if I can't get a pin. The pin hols size is 0.01mm if they are made?? Thx again Len 
    • Beware of inhaling the radium dust from the dial and hands. The half-life is 1600 years. In the body it goes into the bones and irradiates the bone marrow all your life. The radon gas that comes out is not really bad, also the direct radiation is not dangerous at a some distance.    
    • I have a selection of these pins from Cousins. If you let me know the major diameter and the length I can tell you if anything there will fit
    • I like Jubilee bracelets also . It the one you have the larger link then another model ?  I think it's strap code that has the option of  for 2 link sizes . Not pos if it is them .   I had about 2 different  Dive bracelets  on mine before the Marathon one I have on it came up in an auction I won . It came with both the Great Seal of the United States , and the Canadian Maple leaf deployment clasps . They can get pricy for some reason .
