Watch Collection

Hello,
First off I am new to this forum. I am thinking of selling my watch collection that consists of:

Panerai Luminor Marina 44mm #299/400
Rolex Seadweller triple 6 model (1983-1984 model)

I am looking for a reputable in shop in San Diego that is familiar with the value of these watches. Anyone have any names available?

thanks,
T.W.

Sorry for resurrecting a 7 year old thread but I just learned about the user, sdfrog177.

Tyrone "Rone" Woods was a Navy SEAL who was portrayed in the film, "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” and the book that inspired it.

Rest In Peace brother.

Just found this thread...

To:
Navy SEAL Tyrone "Rone" Woods, departed.

Rest in Peace, brave man and protector.

With a lump in my throat, and misty vision, I salute you, Sir.

I wish someone had connected with you.

Wow. Thanks for resurrecting this and calling attention to Tyrone’s story. A sad end to a guy who obviously spent a lifetime risking it all for others.

I hope his kids cherish the watch their father wore during so many of his heroic actions.
