    Help identifying ruxton watch movement

    A friend of mine recently gave me this watch, is a Ruxton (apparently was a private brand of Friedmans Jewelers in Savannah, Georgia - they closed in 2008) and I was thinking of getting it fixed and giving it to my wife, I'm just not sure if it is worth it to spend $50 to $100 in just servicing the movement. If anyone has any idea of what movement this is I'd be greatly appreciated. Regarding the watch, it is about 34mm wide with 16mm lugs and looks in decent shape, but is not keeping time properly. The gold plating is actually in really good shape and the dial has a beautiful texture, hopefully it can be appreciated in the pictures. Thanks in advance!

    I'm sorry but I can't see any pictures. Maybe they got lost in the system - could you repost them, please?

    ETA 2452 or derivative (2472 with a better date mechanism). That is presuming the movement is 11.5'''. There were smaller derivatives of that movement.

    Yeah it's an ETA. Looking at the rotor bearing I'd say it's probably from the 2520 series, from the top of my head. Someone else might narrow it down or correct me if I'm wrong ;)

    Thank you guys that was quick! I'll take it to my watchmaker and we'll see what he can do, I'm guessing it'll need just a basic service and a new crown and plexi
