    Hello all WUS fellows

    Itís made in 1940s.

    The chronograph hands doesnít work properly

    He offered it to me for a $6.00 only

    Can it be FIXED?? Whatís itís movement and is the movement parts are complete??

    Why on the back written Stainless steel BACK??!!! Itís not all stainless steel????

    Is it original piece and all itís pieces are original

    How much does it worth if all functions works properly???

    and what about the current condition how much does it worth???

    Itís written there Minamar

    Thank you

    Couldn't be stated better--this would be a good buy if you were the person doing the repairs (and of course had the necessary skills), a pet project or whatever, but otherwise, lots of better watches that are running that you could buy for what this is going to cost you in the long run.

    I‘d get it. After a completely overhaul it might look like this Valjoux 92 fitted Miramar.

    Buy it. Find out what it will cost to restore it. If the result is favourable, you're OK. If not, don't restore it, rebay it "for parts". I find it odd that a watchmaker would sell a watch so cheaply if it were worth his time restoring it and he had not done so, though.
