A friend gave me an old Hamilton that does not work and I was looking for some advice as to whether it is worth repairing. It is an automatic movement and the back is engraved with the year 1958. Once I opened it up it appears to have a Hamilton 661 caliber movement. From poking around on the 'net it looks like this is actually a Kurth Freres 28.45 caliber movement.
Here are a couple of pics that I took of the watch. (Sorry for the quality.)
The first shows the movement. The rotor reads "HAMILTON WATCH Co 661 Seventeen 17 Jewels"
Here is a shot of the dial.
I like the look of the watch but I don't have any sort of sentimental attachment to it. The rotor spins and the hands move via the crown, but the watch doesn't run at all.
So what advice would yall give me?
