I'm hoping to get some info on my late grandfather's Hamilton. It's an automatic with a solid 14 karat gold case. Unfortunately it's not in working condition...it appears to be missing the crown and stem.
I'm curious as to when it was made, how much it cost at the time, and how difficult it would be to get it in working condition. I know this last point is nearly impossible to address without seeing the watch in the flesh, but I'd like to know generally how easy/hard it would be to get replacement parts.
I should note that I have no interest in knowing its present value, as it will never be for sale.
Please excuse the mediocre pictures. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
