    Help with 1970s Hanowa

    Hi-

    Long time lurker new post.

    I have this 1970s Hanowa that was a gift to me from a girlfriend purchased on her trip to Europe and I thinks she bought it in Switzerland at the time. I could not find much information doing my own search and thought someone here could help. I doubt it is worth much since we were in high school at the time. I wore it for a long time until it stopped working because I thought it was pretty cool . It has that great 70s look to it and I might try to get it functioning if I can.

    Any help appreciated-pics aren't the best.

    Tom

    Welcome to Watchuseek! Your watch is indeed from the 1970s and has a moderately basic movement by Ronda, something like this (exact specifications will be on the movement and will depend on whether it has a pin lever or Swiss lever, etc.):

    Welcome to the forum. Your movement is a Ronda pin-lever job, something like a 1013 as shown here: bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Ronda 1013

    No, don't believe me! I just pulled out from the general list of Ronda movements (the all look superficially alike). The exact specifications should be stamped on the movement, it's just that the photos are too blurred for me to read them.....

    Finally able to get a magnifier to be able to see it and it is stamped 1213-21

    thanks again for the help, with a few inquiries it looks as though it is not worth getting restored due to the cost.

    Update on this watch. I decided to go ahead and have it repaired so now I have it to wear once again and have that cool 70s look.
