Marcel train watch value?

I have a Marcel Watch Corp swiss made pocket watch. On the inside it says marcel watch corp 22, 17 seventeen jewels shock resistant. On the outside face it has a locomotive steam train and says marcel in cursive right above it. It has the normal 1-12 hours then outside of that it has 1-60 in smaller numbers. On the back is an engraved locomotive going on a railroad. Just looking for any potential value

Simple Ways to Increase the Value of Your Home

Every house, even the most carefully built, needs attention and repair occasionally to keep it in good condition and to slow depreciation. Like other kinds of property, a house will show signs of wear and begin to decline in value, if it is not properly cared for.

Hot tubs and spas can add value to your home. Hot tubs (http://www.mybath.biz/servlet/the-Hot-Tubs/Categories) are enjoyed by all ages, and hot tub installation is really quite easy. But if you do not take care of yours, it will quickly gather filth and algae, just like a swimming pool would.

The location of your house has a lot to do with how much it is worth, and the houses near to yours will also affect the value of yours. If you keep yours in good condition, perhaps it will encourage your neighbors to do the same. If not, well, at least you’ll know you have the best looking home in your neighborhood.

A steam sauna is also quite sought after. Having a steam shower (http://www.mybath.biz/typesofsteamshowerenclosures.html) or perhaps a steam room in your home will add even more than a Jacuzzi would. Of course, you couldn’t go wrong if you decided to have both of them.

Adding things like balconies and patios to your home will also go a long way. Fresh paint jobs and varnishing to wood floors will keep the house looking brand new and well taken care of. It is important to keep wood clean and intact in order to prevent the settling of termites, and fresh coats of paint every so often will keep your walls from chipping and looking messy.

You will rarely find an antique bathroom vanity anymore. If you have a bathroom vanity (http://www.mybath.biz/servlet/the-304/Wall-Mounted-Bathroom-Vanity/Detail) like this, you will be envied. A modern bathroom vanity just tends to fit the style of most houses now, so if you’re lucky enough to have an antique house, you should take advantage of it.

Antiquity in itself will add enormous figures to your net worth, especially if it is taken care of. Victorian style antique houses just look so much more dignified and intellectual. They are charming and aristocratic, and are simply beautiful on their own. That is why these houses tend to have such a high value; not only that, but they are difficult to come by these days, and they are often more secluded.

Another good style is the doll house. These are usually painted more unique colors like baby blue and pink, maybe even green. They literally look like toy doll houses, and are just as rare as the Victorian style. They may not look dignified and intellectual, but they are charming in their own sweet way.

There is also a larger variety of color schemes that you can choose from. In fact you can pretty much use any colors you want, and they’ll most likely look great. These houses are usually found in suburban areas and therefore are worth a good amount.
