    Its a "roskopf" style movement (no center wheel, pin lever, and the minute wheel is driven directly off the mainspring barrel). The design of this looks sorta like a Baumgartner (bidfun-db Baumgartner_20: Baumgartner 20), but it was a fairly common design. We don't do valuations on the forum, and they'd be particularly difficult with a watch like this. Intrinsically, it isn't worth much (these were designed and sold pretty much as disposable watches), but its age and novelty will make it attractive to the right sort of collector, and its very disposability means that there its' rarity is continually going up.
