    Low quality pin-lever movement.

    BFG 866 (or something of that family), manufactured by Baumgartner, Switzerland, assembly and finishing by Agon, also in Switzerland, supplied to Fingerhut Products Co, USA.

    It is a very cheap, single jewel, pin-lever movement produced in vast quantities and found in entry-level watches made in many countries from the 1960s (I think) through to early 1980s.

    I found the dial of the watch to be attractive to me, and I was wondering if you thought personally that it was worth about 60 USD?

    It has already (if it is currently running). But to answer your question seriously; as tough as these movements are when new, it will suffer the effects of friction more than a fully-jewelled movement. And although it is fully serviceable, it was made with the expectation of being disposable.

    I have one of those Mansons with the 1 jewel movement. It also says fingerhut on it. Lol I would never pay $60 for it. I didn't pay nothing for mine and I would presume that's pretty close to the value of one. Lol

    Re: MANSON WATCH movement questions!

    Thanks for the replies, everyone! Seems to be not worth it at all!

    Please help me though, because I'm new to the technicalities of movements.
    What makes the "pin-lever" undesirable?
