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

    • So, I'm gonna try and post a couple of photos shortly, both Seiko of course for reasons stated earlier.   The blue one is apparently called the "ashtray" bezel. It winds, works, keeps good time, over the last 8 hours anyway, the only snag being the day pusher function does not operate every time.  The silver one is a Seiko deluxe which does not wind or work, in fact it makes a disheartening rattly noise when shaken, like something has come adrift inside.  They were purchased as items for me to take apart and study, then hopefully reassemble, having cleaned and lubed.  The ashtray arrived from India today, the deluxe arrived from Japan today, both were ordered last midweek. How easy these days to begin a new hobby, what with international freight, the Internet, and training vids on you tube. I may not even renew my porn subscription, this hobby could save me money!!!   Next purchase will be a set of intro level tools, then to business. 
    • One option for white is to use a toner reactive foil. This is what I used with success: https://www.circuitspecialists.com/pcb-trf-white.html I didn't use decal paper for printing but used toner transfer paper. My presumption this would still work with the film-less decal paper. Getting the toner reactive foil to work is tricky though. It requires both heat and pressure. Too much heat and pressure and entire dial turns white. Too little and it would only partially stick. It also requires some brushing to remove any bits of foil left over. It took a lot of time, practice an patience for it to work for me but it is certainly possible. I wouldn't recommend this on a dial you only have one-shot with, try with a blank you can practice with.
    • Ah yes, a coupla good ideas there!  I'll go find a welder and cadge a rod, that's a cheap option. Thank you fellas. 
    • Thanks, nickelsilver!  You mean, the first hairspring, the one still mounted is beyond repair? I haven’t touched it. If it is what you meant, it’s disappointing.  Thanks for the clarification on the vintage tools!
    • Can we have a look at the back. I'm sure the movement comes out from the back. That is not a waterproof case.
