    Is this worth restoring?

    We found this watch in the FIL's effects when he died a couple of years ago. Mrs Smith has asked me to find out a bit more about it and whether it is worth restoring. I did ask the question a couple of years ago but the pic I posted was crap and I can't find the thread anyway. Here it is:



    It winds and runs but not a particularly good timekeeper

    I havenít really got any info on the brand but worth restoring well if itís continental then most definitely but from a value point I would guess not.

    Get it serviced and enjoy it as it is with the patina :)

    The brand had some history once it's a nice art deco piece I would send it out for a service.

    Aha, thanks. Don't know why I couldn't find it.

    Now, I'm wondering who would be best to send it to?
