    Royal geographical Society 13 jewels

    Hey, guys! This is my first post here. :)

    So, I'm just a watch enthusiast who got her first repair kit.

    I've had this watch stopped for years. It never worked in my hands.

    The name is Royal geographical Society.

    I've opened it to figure out what's wrong, but I'm a noob so I'm guessing it's the movement.

    Can anyone tell me where can I buy a Ronda 13 jewels/726 SWISS?

    I'm sorry if this isnt enough.

    Thanks for the help, guys!

    Probably just keep an eye on eBay. If you need parts, maybe check out the independent suppliers like Cousins UK.

    RGS didn't make the watch. Most likely, it was some marketing gadget for the RGS members/employees.

    Discontinued movement, apparently. This asking price is hard to swallow (170 euro)

    Well, the seller of this one has apparently only 87.5% positive feedback, so it's not likely that I'm the only one who thinks that he's not quite all there. The asking price is completely insane - I seriously doubt it's a good probe of the averages.
    Another solution is to find a worthless and battered quartz watch on eBay, equipped with this movement, and use it as a parts donor.

    I guess it's a chronograph. Is that correct @MariaSilva?
