My brother-in-law came by last night to solicit my thoughts on some watches he’s been given by an elderly friend of his. There were several quality pieces but this one in particular he’s committed to wearing. I checked it out to the extent of my knowledge and everything seems to be in working order, but I cautioned him against even infrequent wear until it’s had a proper service. I believe the movement is a Valjoux calibre 88, though I was unable to locate any markings to confirm that. I’m in need of a confirmed identification of the movement, a referral to a watchmaker experienced working on them and a general idea of the cost to fully service the movement and case. I realize there are plenty of variables to consider when answering the cost question, but he has the resources and after our discussion last night is committed to either doing what’s best for the watch or not wearing it. The watch is in my possession so if there’s a particular area where another picture will help it’s available on short notice. Your opinions, experiences and recommendations are welcomed, with much thanks in advance.
