    Take the bezel off of your watch, clean the case and replace the bezel with a correctly fitting spring.
    Or do you want to make up your watch's face with another bezel?

    I saw your album and would do this but I need to find the correct spring. I am not certain I can find one unless I look at ebay unless you know of a source. Really looking forward to wearing this one.

    thank you. Looking forward to having the bezel working. Was the gold crown normal for this watch?

    No,

    originally there was a metal one, chrome plated and polished. On your crown the chrome is gone.
    Later there have been crowns of stainless steel too.

    I received the bezel spring and I will be asking a well known shop in the big city to put it on and service the watch as well. Thank you very much for all of your help.

    I wanted to say that I had the watch repaired and serviced. I decided to leave the original bracelet and worn crown on it as it is vintage, not new. Any idea what value would be for something like this?

    Re: Valuations.

    WatchUSeek does not offer valuations, nor do we recommend trying to have your watch valued online. Assessing the value of a watch is dependent on many factors, most of which require qualified persons having access to the watch directly. While members may provide their opinions as to the value of a watch, these are purely their opinions and do not represent WUS. If you need an value for insurance purposes, contact a qualified watchmaker who is certified for this activity (this varies from country to country), an auction house or a reputable watch dealer. The Complete Price Guide to Watches by Tom Engle, Richard E. Gilbert and Cooksey Shugart, published by Tinderbox Press of Mt Pleasant, SC, USA (commonly known as “Shugart”) is a recognized starting point for watch valuations, but this does not represent a recommendation to use that book as anything but a starting point in determining your watch’s value. As WatchUSeek is not in the business of watch valuation, we will not recommend anyone, but members may address individual requests with their own recommendations.
    Kind regards
    Mike
