Looks quite nice. I would go for early 1960s on dating that. As for the lug, you only have the option of trying to bend it back very gently or to get another case. Since the whole thing is probably originally assembled from generic prts, this should not be excessively difficult but it would still be a pain finding a suitable replacement. Good luck!
Thanks so much for dating that. I forgot to mention the watch ticks, I got the hand put back and the watch serviced. So far it's keeping quite good time since it started ticking again.
I would be interested in 'another case' option. This watch has seen so much use that the area around the caseback has been eaten into, I can see the gaps.
Do you know where I could (try to) find the source for these cases? And possibly the crystal too, there's a hairline crack in it.
My guess - 60's or 50's. A movement pic would help.
If a springbar still works, I wouldn't mess with the lug.

"The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter
...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
I got a watch guy to do the service, so sorry, no movement pic for now, and not too keen on taking it out now for fear i might break something.
The springbar still works, barely. The problem is that it's so bent the springbar is at least 30 degrees off, which rubs the strap, and because that is so old it has disintegrated when I was handling it this morning. I took it off for now.
