    The beautiful halfhunter case marked with ALD is a Dennison watch lt. case . I'm not sure about the movement. I know this regulage by revue / G.Thommen and click match but other parts less. They build their movemens with different bridge variantions but I've never seen it in this way and the balance usually as a simple srewbalance and not a compensation one as here.

    I hope someone knews more.
    To fix this watch just look in your surrounding for a watchmaker who is a handcraft and not a battery changer/salesman and knows about vintage and pocket watches.

    Kind regards

    The finish is typical of Longines from that time period, and I've seen Agassiz movements with that regulator before. Welcome to Old Watch Parts.com - 19 Lignes (16 Size) Agassiz Pocket Watch Movement, Circa 1900 (Powered by CubeCart)

    Can we get a picture of the hallmarks inside the caseback? We should be able to date the case from that.

    Hello. your watch is 9ct. gold.. In this economy and with what you have,, figure gold scrap + 100.00 if you are lucky.. This is my opinion.. have been working with watches for over 20 years.. hope this helps Ernie

    See, this is why we don't do valuations in this forum. Cause even in this economy, I'd think a gold longines demi-hunter is worth a bit more then scrap + 100, IIF you know how to sell it. If you dump it on EBay, then you're gambling.

    The watch is worth as much as the buyer is willing to pay for it. Meaning that if you have patience you might find somebody willing to pay more than suggested above. One that will want to restore it rather than buy it for scrap. This comes as a general rule which also applies in your case.
    Check around the web for any past auctions to get an idea of the value then drop it on bay with a reserve price and see where it goes.
