Number on the case is H37859. Runs with second hand sweeping, but other hands don't move. Ideas for repair, other than my local jeweler?
Do you want to keep all the patina? After you get the insides working, I would see if it could simply be cleaned and maybe polish out the crystal so it is kept as original as possible. Polishing the case can round out some of the crisp edges, like we see on the edges of so many estate pipes. Do you remember what kind of strap your father wore it on?
