Looking to get some more info about this watch if anyone can help. Google searches are a bit inconclusive.
This watch was my grandfathers but i donít know much beyond that. I recently acquired it after going thru my grandmothers items. My grandfather passed away when I was 4 in the early 80s. Iím curios to find out how old the watch is.
Day Date at 3 oíclock
Case thickness: 13mm
ďAutomatic 333 FeetĒ on face above the 6 oíclock
N5 stamped on back
I did figure out how to set it! Was a bit of a challenge. It has the semi-quickset for the date. Each pull out of the crown will advance the date by one day. So far it appears to be running great, havenít check the timing but it seems close to accurate.
The watch is really beat up all around. Crystal is very scratched and hard to read thru. The strap it was on was really terrible, a gold/silver elastic bracelet. He was a heavy machinery mechanic in the Southwest; I can imagine him wearing this while climbing under big service trucks in the middle of the desert and dragging this watch thru the sand.
Iím wondering if I should try to replace the crystal and give it a polish. The watch isnít really my style with the gold/silver combo. But I could wear it occasionally to remember him. Know it isnít worth much beyond sentimental value to me. Thoughts on refurbishing it?
