    Probably a watch of the 1960s. Case back says : "Stainless steel case back" which is a hint that the case is not stainless steel. At those good old times cases have been made out of brass, chrome or gold plated. Atlantic used different movements, e.g. Unitas 6300 or FHF (FHF ST 96, handwinding) or A. Schild movements. Do not know why but it is said that the watches were very popular in Eastern Europe.
    There was a variety of Atlantic Worldmaster available: automatic, handwinding, with and without date. Just do a search here on WUS and you will find some threads on these watches, here's just one:

    Looks pretty much like Atlantic I inherited from my grandfather. Second hand was missing and was replaced what was found from watchmakers inventory, should try to find a donor to get one like original. Case is chrome plated and movement is 17 jewels AS 1113, crown still original with logo.

    My advice is to keep it, I doubt you get much from selling it. Instead you could keep it and have a piece of history which is part of your relative.

    Brand is still active: Swiss tradition watches - Atlantic Swiss Made Watches Since 1888

    Hi and welcome to WUS. If you are looking for interest then a better place to post your query would be on the sales forum here on WUS. You will get plenty of eyes looking for a watch. For a value look at sales prices for comparable watches on Ebay. When new a 1960's Atlantic with a chrome plated case and steel back would have been targeted to the moderate to mid priced watch market. Your watch looks to be in good condition and would show off that attractive dial much better if the crystal was polished to remove decades of scratches. I agree with keeping rather than selling the watch.

    Mike hit it on the head and that should be a good start to help you acquire further info on the watch.
