    Won’t make any sense here I’m on the dark side of the globe :)) but it’s about 40 dollars.

    From the the looks of of the bracelet, the gold looks like it's been painted on!

    If this is any indication of the quality of the watch, without more information on the movement I'd personally move on...

    The bracelet wasn’t from this watch.

    I’ve been looking and I found similar 17 jeweles and shockprotected without a space on some Lanco and Continental watches

    I've never heard of this brand, but I'm no expert on the subject of obscure forgotten Swiss brands.

    It wasn't uncommon in the 60's and 70's for many small brands (including jewellers and retailers) to source cases and generic 17 jewel incabloc movements and make their own.

    The dial looks in good condition and may even be a replacement which could be a good thing, or a bad thing if it's hiding something else.

    There really isn't much to go on here.

    It might help if you were able to provide some more information from the listing and pictures otherwise it's all guesswork for me.

    Sorry.

    Even for $40, I wouldn't - with such minimal information.

    I ilke the design to be honest. And if the movement is something decent and really swiss, I’m tempted. That’s because I buy watches to wear them, I’m not really interested in value evolution or brand recognition.

    Then you need to ask the seller for a photo of the movement.
