    It is a no name brand, it is quartz, it is not a collector's item, I would not consider to buy it.

    I would buy it, as long as the price is right. A watch from "The Godfather" must have some value.
    Have a nice day.

    Re: record watch

    There was a Record Watch Co. in Germany in the past, but...this doesn't appear to be from that firm. The pic is from eBay:


    and there are a few other, similar ones, suggesting they were a German maker of military watches. One has to be leery about eBay of course, but there are several such listings.

    BUT, what you have is, IMO, a zombie brand. That watch is quartz, not mechanical. The quality looks low...that "let's cut off the ENTIRE right edge!" is unappealing, to say the least. Low or even average quality quartz with difficult provenance...not much sale value.
    The truth is rarely pure and never simple.

    Do not mix up the Record Watch Company and the manufacturer of your "record". Worlds apart.

    There have been Record watches in Germany but Record Watches CO. was a swiss manufacturer in La Chaux de Fond, Tramelan, Switzerland. The watch in the pic is swiss not german, whatever the seller tries to imply.

    Ahh. Wasn't sure, mike. I think the listing was for a German military watch, so I might have misread it.

    But to be sure...the OP's watch didn't come from that factory.
