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

    • That is the Indian copy of an MKS 46610 (famous Japanese brand), I got one as clearance from Germany and paid maybe less than that. If you use the search function you should find my posting.
    • My experience with the handheld cheap Chinese glass presses on eBay is truly poor, and I've come to learn that I'm not alone. Yesterday I was struggling with it for over 30 minutes to fit an armoured glass in a Vostok Amphibian before giving up. At that point, while still holding it in my hand looking at it with disdain, I thought: "What a piece of utter rubbish!". Anyway, what I'd really want would be a Robus press, but gosh, that would be over £500 with the die set (tax included, excluding shipping)! So, I found this tool "Professional spindle press for housings and glasses with twenty-four inserts" on eBay for £72. It sure sounds promising, but it would be great with a review, or if none can be had your opinion.
    • Sharpening is a science and an industry. Trivia facts follow An important figure in drill sharpening is Joseph Mazoff, a self-taught American. His article is still current on the matter and the basis for most sharpeners, I have attached it here.  A 1st brand drill bit sharpener can cost €600  https://www.wabeco-remscheid.de/catalog/product/view/id/6710/s/spiralbohrer-schleifmaschine/category/487/  It's Chinese copy, one half of that https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Drill-Bit-Electric-Big-Grinder-MR-13A-CNC-drilling-cutter-grinding-machines-with-ER11-collects/32867482062.html If you have something that cuts there is a professional way to sharpen it. Blunt axe? No problem https://www.sharpening.org.uk/product/tormek-sva-170-axe-grinding-jig/ I'm currently disputing an Amazon seller that sent a cheap knife sharpener instead of a 75mm grinding wheel  Drill_Point_Geometry_nt.pdf
    • I recall a fairly recent topic which where some was saying that Bergeon screwdriver had become worse and worse with time. We got the proof here. 
    • A relic of the Jewel Wars, this 35mm 1950s Mount Royal with an 80 jewels (kind of) Felsa 4002, 21 of which are broadly functional and 59 which, er, aren’t. I’ve no idea how many of these watches survive today or, indeed, were ever made but it “coulda been a contender” until the likes of Waltham, Orient, and Titoni climbed into the ring with their 100 (and more) jewelled efforts. Of the two recorded makers of a Mount Royal brand, Choisi seems to be the most likely candidate for today’s curiosity, it being a product of the original company founded in 1929 before its demise, date unknown. The company name was seemingly reactivated in 2013 by a Singapore-owned  enterprise which, from what I can see, is largely producing retro-style watches along with homages based on the old company’s vintage models.  Regards.
