    Looks like a Swiss movement, late 19th century. You might be able to find a junk case on ebay to fit the bezel, or maybe a good watchmaker would have one.
    I wouldn't spend a lot on it though unless it's a family heirloom.

    I agree... unless you have some sentimental attachment to this specific watch, it is probably beyond it's economic life. You can buy much better to replace it for what it will take to revive it.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
