Are Iraqi wrist watches with Saddam Hussein's face on them valuable?

My friend who was living in Iran
is now in Damascus and keeps finding Saddam Hussein wrist watches in the market there. The shop-keepers say that they were hocked by refugees who had been guards or military officers and received them as gifts, and generally quote a price around $100 apiece. I have google searched and ebay searched for anything about their value, but all I have found is a photo book
and a few scattered listings on ebay - no real indications as to what the market is, or whther there is any market. Any hints as to where I might look?
(She also found some great stamps from Yemen with pictures of JFK and I am similarly having a hard time finding value, but that is because there are too many links rather than too few.)
