Went on a treasure hunt on ebay and bought a blurry 3- watch lot. One watch is junk (a Hormilton ) description said it was a Hamilton , second is not much better(swiss Westclox 17 jewel). Both of these do work. But the third is a Glycine Compressor. This came with a gold fill Kreisler band that by my estimate has $24 worth of gold in. ( that is $2 less than I paid for all 3 watches.
The glycine sets and winds but is not running. My question? I really don't know what a compressor is. Can I just pop the back off to see what the condition the mechanism is in, or for that matter what the mechanism is? Or because it is a compressor, does it need special watchmaker equipment to even open it up. And because I spent effectively nothing on it, is it worth putting some real money into it. Any info on this watch welcome
