    Is it worth getting fixed?

    I have this watch that has been in my wived family for years. It still works sometimes if you tap it lightly. I do not have the key for it. I was wondering if anyone knew about how old it is.

    Moved to Vintage. The case mark looks like the letter o to me which might mean 1869. Maybe someone can see it better. We'd need to see the movement for further ID I believe.

    Not sure it's an o as it seems to have a flat bottom, maybe a u for 1875, but yes we really need a better, as in sharper picture of the inside caseback to see the hallmarks (my advice from experience is to take a number of photos because one of them will turn out to be in focus, and use macro mode of course), but that would only date the case. A photo of the movement would indicate if the case is original to the movement and give an idea of the likely date to confirm the case hallmark.

    Merged two threads from Public Forum and our Vintage & Pocket Watches Forum. Pleas do not flood the fora. One thread in the right forum should do the trick, don't you think.
    Kind regards

    One is really compelled to ask: What do you consider worth being fixed?
