    I think you should post some sharp photos of the movement
    and marks inscribed to give those who know the history more
    information.


    Thanks,

    Not quite right, this pocket watch has been made by the Uhrenfabrik Glashütte Aktiengesellschaft which started in 1926 after the Glashütter Präzisions-Uhren-Fabrik Akt. Ges. went bankrupt and the Uhrenfabrik Glashütte Altiengesellschaft (known as the UFAG) took over the bankrupt's assets and started to produce pw and wrist watches. Lateron they started to make quality movements and named them Tutima. Yours is one of the first Tutima movements, not high quality but standard. I think yours has been sourced by the UFAG from Emile Judith, a swiss ebauche manufacturer who went bankrupt (1925) as well. So I would date the movement/watch to be made after 1927, maybe in 1928.

    Thank you, your input is much appreciated, it has a lot of sentimental value since it was engraved with grandpa's initials, but still curious as other than the sentimental value, is it worth servicing the mechanism and a polishing the case?
    or save the money and just display the watch as is ?

    One of the very early "Tutima' standard 18,5''' movements, lateron they were added with srcrew balance, Breguet spring, swan neck fine adjustment. This one is a very basic 15 or 16 jewels movement.

    Is it in working condition, I mean does it run whenwpund up ? Service then will not cost a fortune. Even if a new spring is needed - any knowledgeable watchmaker is capable of replacing it. Does not cost a fortune either. A pocket watch in working condition will contribute in a positive way to its sentimental value.
