Default vintage women citizen diver 150 m

hello
I have a citizen women divers watch, from the early 80`s, automatic, 150 m, day&date, untouched and never serviced, in good working condition
Its a GN 4 S , model, 54-0919
I have read in this forum , from some posts from 2015, that there is no market for women collection watches. Is this still true ?? i must say i was surprised
Also, can someone give me an idea of its approximate value ? i found the equivalente of the mans watch, but nothing for women
Any help much appreciated
I am attaching a photo, it is the right one

I think that with women's watches, it is up to the individual buyer who might like a woman's watch either for oneself or for a collection piece. About 7 years ago I began to collection Seiko women's divers for fun on the Japan Yahoo auctions. No one was buying them so I bid and won some. Back then they were cheap, like $80 or so depending on shape and model. Some were pro models...Years ago here in Japan I found a Citizen ladies diver quartz for $5.00.....I grabbed it! Yours is nice and you could offer about $100 to sell. Again, if you price it at $200 and someone wants it for his wife, you have a sale! haha!
here are 2 Seiko Albas and the diver Citizen I bought the wife years ago..

Yes, even here in Manila, the market for ladies' watches sucks.. It's men who generally buy pre-owned ladies watches, as gifts, and ladies mostly buy new, well I'm speaking from my own experience and what I've observed here.

And men, well, they have little or no idea of ladies' watches value, so it's a hard sell. You might have an Omega Ladymatic with the iconic caliber 660 and it would be very hard to sell to a bloke looking to gift his lady with it, coz it's gonna be a sale largely on the aesthetics of the watch.

Well, good luck. I collected them for a while too, coz I was fortunate that my wife was into the technical details rather than the aesthetics of watches as well. She picked up another hobby (hobbies) though and is no longer as into watches as I am.

Man, your wife was into the technical details of the watches? Oh my goodness me. That will have a number of the brethren setting down their drinks, rubbing their chins and staring heavenwards in sweet reverie at the thought of such a magnificent woman.
Mrs TGP has and elliptical relationship with time and views my watches with the suspicious glare of a nomadic pygmy.
I salute your good fortune, Sir!

Hi Simon. Thanks!! She was into movements, and Google was her friend. She appreciated a watch with long power reserve a bit more than a watch with diamonds or in solid gold. She's a Swiss snob though - she hasn't worn the Seikos I got for her.
