The five star admiral Longines, looks genuine, original hands, dial. Good brand.

Evidence of moisture inside the case therefore the movement. I would remove the back, peak inside, send picture and test the set mech, winder. 

Moisture damage to the dial, greately reduces the value. Aprox $350

The vulcain, dial is looks suspecious, examine close see if painted, see if the word swiss appear at six oclock. $30

Tissot, check the extend of water and other damges inside, $25

Seiko chrono aprox $150

Between the two of us, take ths GUB home, very liitle work. Best of the herd. Don,t know a price.

The Russian one, just that its chrono. Values not much.

My appraisal is usually ignored.

Enjoy em in good health, I would post a query for advice on how to the longine dial, or have it cleaned.Unless experienced you shouldn,t attack the dial.

Best wishes.

the reliance will likely have a seiko movement.The ones I have seen were sold by croton as their budget line, something like a caravelle by bulova.
Do you know what movement the admiral 5 star is expected to have?

I thought NuceJoe would say the caseing on this one is unique he usually has a sharp eye, I haven't seen it before since the most of these came with an 18k gold case.

Depending on what year the watch was produced it came with a range of different movements, here is a selection..

calibre 340
calibre 501
calibre 506
calibre 507
calibre 508
calibre L 636.5
calibre 1753
calibre 6651 

Since your watch looks like a 70's piece I would guess it should have a calibre 50X inside, but this is a tricky one..

May I guess the Reliance could have Lorsa ?
Possibly a P72 or P72A ?

Lorsa is of course a possibility..but since I didn't see the word FRANCE at the bottom of the dial.I thought JAPAN.

That Reliance really looks like my Leon Piraguet 17 jewels ... case/bezel/crown/hands/etc ... even the design of the dial is similar except mine has a Lorsa P75 inside.
That's why I thought about a Lorsa P72

    • Cousinsuk have there own size chart. Which i think is the best. Esslinger have the right one that most other use. U should need a tap 8 crown. As for the crown. older Tissot used a domed crown without logo.    Watch Stem Tap Chart _ mm Size Reference Chart _ Esslinger.com _ Esslinger Watchmaker Supplies Blog.html
    • I get it....and I honestly dont blame them. However theres much more to the story primaruly shitty customer service. The bottom line the price between a tag aquaracer and the Oris TT1 is $0. The reason why I went with the TT1 was its smaller size. With that said this saga has taught me a couple things.......Oris uses a cheaper grade movement and their quality is much less than the TAG do youre better iff with the TAG in the end. For me back then I had no concept of movements etc etc and though each watch manf made everything in house. Had I known then what I know now I wouldnt have purchased the TT1. Hopefully anybody in that same situation may stumble upon this thread and be warned as I was not. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
    • Not surprisingly, an ETA 2824-2. https://www.atlantic-watches.ch/en/shop/retro-vintage/worldmaster-original/2355/worldmaster-original?c=80 But a price of RON 125,  or €26 seems too good to be true.
    • What is an "adjustable escapement"? Even the cheapest mov.t can be rate regulated, while adjustment is a sort of obscure art which if you ask about,  you will be told that "starts at the mainspring". Whatever that means 
    • Certainly is not ORIS only that does this, have a read below. Since mechanical wristwatches moved from being a common and necessary items to luxury and fashion the Swiss and Japanese will take all the money they can,
