Im new to the site and looking for some help in identifying the age/model of this watch and how to properly wind it. This watch has more sentimental value then dollar value, especially since i dont even know the worth, would it be something to add to my insurance coverage?
It was my grandmothers, Ive had it for many many years (30+ years in my hands). My dad does not remember when she got it. If I had to guess its at least 60+ years old.
The black leather band was its original band, my dad changed it to the white gold bracelet when he gave it to me.
It is a watch that needs winding to function. It does not have a battery, im almost 100% positive on this, as I remember seeing the back open once a long time ago and there was no battery, plus the fact that it still functions to this day and i have never replaced a battery.
The face of this watch is about the size of a 10 cent dime coin. It has 5 diamonds on the top and 5 diamonds on the bottom (no idea if diamonds are real or not). There are no serial numbers on the back, it is a smooth back. I do not want to open it to see the movement or if there are numbers inside, as I do not have the tools nor do I want to accidentally damage it.
If anyone can help me with this, that would be great. I actually contacted Movado directly but they weren't able to give me much info (other then provide me with an operating manual and the closer authorized Movado dealer, 2hrs away)
