    Help me identify my Marvin watch

    Hi guys,
    I need some help identifying my Marvin watch. I don't know anything about it, there is little info on the internet. It belonged to my late grandfather and it is in pretty bad shape. It needs crystal and hands, the movement works fine. I don't even know if it's vintage or not, he got iz somewhere in the 80's.
    Thanks!

    Welcome to Watchuseek! 1980s is about right, although I would have put it a little earlier (typical 1970s style). I am not sure whether it belonged to a model line - most watches didn't in those days. I would take great care of the dial if the crystal is gone - these things unfortunately scratch rather easily.

    Thank you very much for the info!
    Do you possibly know where I could source the chrystal and hands?
    I can't open their web page for some reason. I thought to try with them, but I heard this is now some new company selling watches under Marvin mame.

    I think that you would be better off going to an independent watchmaker. It will be down to getting generic replacements anyway. If you really want to keep it original, I'd hunt down a picture of the original watch (catalogue, another specimen on the web,.....) to see what they looked like. The trouble is that Marvin isn't really the original company any more and they are unlikely to have original parts. The most difficult item is probably going to be the crystal since that shape is very specific (with the round ones, you just need to pick the right size).
