I am excited and anticipating the arrival of my first venture into the world of pocket watches... A +/- 20 year-old Tissot lepine.

From what I understand, this piece was purchased in Europe around 20 years ago, and used infrequently. Unfortunately, the papers are long gone.
I am a complete neophyte in this realm, but I have learned that this is a Lepine style, and probably used the Unitas 649X base ebauche. As it is from a relatively pedestrian brand, I assume the movement is not very elaborate but should be reliable and easy to service / maintain. Unfortunately, I do not have any photos of the movement, but will add them ASAP.
I've tried to find out some information about this watch on through Google etc.. but there isn't much out there. Any information you could provide or confirm, would be much appreciated!
Thanks, in advance,
