This is what it says on the back

Hi Sharon

Is it one like this?

From the caseback it appears to be gold
plated, rather than solid gold. Although I don't know this model I'd be surprised if it's worth a great deal. Ladies Seiko don't tend to be - especially if they're a little worn.
From the serial number it looks like it's probably a 1970 model. Would that be about right?
Perhaps you could tell her that you would like to keep it in the family. If she's determined to sell perhaps you could offer to meet the buyers offer?

Ah ha. Probably 1980(?)rather than 1970. I missed the fact that it's quartz.
The reason that I said gold plated is that it has 'base metal' printed on the back. This usually means that the case is brass or steel with a plating over the top. If it is solid gold then that's a lot of gold in the bracelet. Perhaps you/she should get it appraised by another jeweller just to be sure.
