    Old Hamilton 14K Gold Filled Pocket Watch, is it worth fixing?

    I am a new to collecting and just recently joined this forum.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    How much would it cost to have such a watch serviced and for a new crystal?

    Depending on where you live and the availability of watchmakers in your area that are knowledgeable about vintage pocket watches I'd expect to pay around $150. I wouldn't spend too much more as the watch is not worth much more. Your 917 is a size 10 watch and was made between 1936-1956.

    Kind of like restoring an old car. you rarely ever get you money out of it.... you do it for the love of the car.
