Bump it against your palm once or twice.

Older movement with dried lubrication. Sometimes needs "persuasion" to get ticking.

Also most watch repairers will charge far more than $40 to strip-clean-lube the movement. $200 or more for an automatic movement is not unusual. In big cities there is competition and some repair shops that charge lower. In medium or small cities, you may be lucky to find somebody local who does the work. Often it is shipped out regionally, with a markup by the store or jeweler you take to.

Already done the bumping and had been working for a month. (n/t) fpage77 67 April 29, 2019 06:58PM
Is that the final conclusion? (n/t) fpage77 103 April 11, 2019 05:33PM
If you ever take the back off, get a good high res. photo of the movement. JohnSNY 107 April 11, 2019 05:41PM
Going to get it fixed. This is movement. Trying to date still. Jpeg Attachments fpage77 65 May 03, 2019 08:38AM
I can give you some information. The movement was made by Felsa, between 1942 and the 60s Jpeg Attachments Zeb 67 May 03, 2019 01:46PM

"Automatic" and "waterproof" are clues to its age. JohnSNY 112 April 09, 2019 06:00AM
+1 for the same reasons. BF Hammer 116 April 09, 2019 04:31PM
Interesting. fpage77 111 April 09, 2019 05:24PM
I have several vintage '30s and '40s watches that are VERY accurate also. (n/t) jhargrave 111 April 09, 2019 05:58PM
It looks like a generic Swiss watch. Is it about 30mm diameter? jhargrave 119 April 09, 2019 12:07AM

The hands look a little like one I've got too. It was a WW2 vintage. I'll post a pic jhargrave 113 April 09, 2019 01:00AM
My WW2 watch, about the same size. (n/t) Jpeg Attachments jhargrave 133 April 09, 2019 05:23AM
