That is an old salesman's case so that they could show the movements to the jewelers they were trying to get to carry and sell Zodiac watches.

As for what you can do with them, this is not the for sale forum, so bear that in mind. You can put a price on them and post them in there. You can also put the whole thing on eBay and auction it off.

 :welc Holy sweet mother of all things holy...I think that is what is known as a real "Holy Grail" item.  The rarity of that item should be without question. Good luck on the sale of of that item here or elsewhere. I think an auction would serve you best  but that is really  COOL! Thanks for showing it. :ur

Keep them and let the kids worry about them? They are NOT worth a fortune, trust me on that one.

Er...uhh... I think I meant to say "rarer than hens teeth" or maybe just "Hey that's a real interesting piece". The " Holy Grail" description should be left for others that are far more pious than I am!!!  >:D ;)

Thank you orange. I am getting a lot of ambiguous replies, so I can only do more research and find out exactly what to do with them.
