I'm looking for a bit of help if anyone is willing and able please.
I just made my first move into the the world of vintage and, after researching for a long time, jumped at something rather impulsively. My question regards the movement which was described as a caliber 478/C; I read this should have hacking but the problem is, now I've got it in hand, the watch doesn't.
This is the watch and movement:
Is that movement a caliber 478? If so, does that mean that movement isn't actually in the watch? (I'm not sure how I'd open it up to have a look).
If not, what movement is it and should it be in the watch? I wondered if it was the similar(?) 470. If it is, would that negatively affect value?
And finally, does everything (else) look correct?
