Sirs, first time poster (but have been a lurker for a bit) and have tried to gain a minimal understanding thru interrogating the archives. I recently acquired a Wittnauer wrist watch (see photos) that intermittently runs. Unfortunately, I really like the watch. I am aware that repair and service are required. I have obtained 3 local (Arizona) bids on repair work... range $200 - $400 for stem replacement and servicing. My dilemma is at what point does investing in needed repairs become a loss leader when compared to value of the watch ? I have viewed various auction sites on-line and "completed listings" so have a reasonable ballpark for current value. I really enjoy this watch ...(but, convincing the bride is another matter). I sure would like to make this an everyday wear. So, to get to the questions.... does this watch warrant resuscitation ? Is it "vintage" or only 50-60's era ? I like the "patina" but all the repairmen are recommending changing out the crystal ? Does this model have a name ie "Geneve"? The band is a twist-o-flex Speidel...I dig it ! but what would this watch have been issued with ? Any opinions or information (data points) on this watch are appreciated. Thank you. Charles Wittnauer , 10K rolled gold, 17 jewel wrist watch..... .
