Hi all... question about this pocket watch I just received from my Grandmother. It was her great Grandfathers and I wanted to see if I could get it fixed. I just got back from the watch shop and he is going to do an estimate for me, but I thought I would ask you as well...
It has an alarm function on it (which I hear is somewhat rare), but it only has 1 jewel. The watch maker said it might not be worth fixing because it was cheaply made - because of only having 1 jewel, which kind of sucks (if it's true).
It's a Simplon Swiss Made with Cesar Renfer -Abrecht markings on it. Any advice on whether or not to fix it, is it cheap, what would you suggest?? Any thoughts are helpful. Thanks!
