Yesterday evening I purchased an Arnex pocketwatch at our local Goodwill.  I have found only one example of this model for sale on the Intrawebs here: http://www.boomertime.com/5%20Pocket/P3613/P3613.htm

I ask our watch experts -- is the price being asked on that page realistic?  I am not familiar with the make, and see other models on eBay for anywhere from $19.00 to over $200.00 and am curious whether I made a good buy or a very, very good buy.

... if it helps, I paid $15 for it.  Looks like a very good buy to me, but I was hoping some of our watch enthusiasts would have some insight.

Arnex is a division of Lucien Piccard, a Swiss company. They make quite good watches, and even if it needs servicing $15 is a great price for one. Note that the one you linked to is in "factory mint" condition, has a Brocade Gold face, and a magnificent enamel back. I'm sure you got a very good deal from Goodwill, but I doubt you did that well!
