Hi, first time ever on vintage forum... During the last visit to my parents I found this tiny movement which is about 50 years old, since Mom says it was Dad's present when they were just dating. I remember that nice watch which Mom wore as a necklace.
My first idea was to restore it and give it back to my mother, or may be restore the movement and put it into custom made golden case of my own design... That would be nice, I though. But when I asked a watchmaker (in Kiev, Ukraine) whether it was possible to put that movement into a custom case, he doubted it. Moreover I have no idea what is wrong with the movement, but it seems broken. You can't wind it, though you can move hands.
So, what do you think? I know, my idea was good, but does this movement worth restoring. It is written Chaika (Чайка) on the dial and Made in USSR, and on the movement it is said 17 jewels, in English. Probably the watch was made for export.
