The movement # 475315 was produced around 1945. You mentioned inheriting the watch mechanism, do you have the original case, dials, hands? BR, Dan

It won't be easy, but if you can find a watchmaker or a watch with a bad movement, you may be able to create a usable watch for yourself. We don't discuss monetary values on our Lounge, but I don't think there is high demand for a simple, vintage, movement. The highest value you receive from this movement is knowing that it came from your grandfather. BR, Dan
Dan, exactly what I was going to write!

Look for a watch with none or a total broken movement at a dealer, or first, perhaps, at E--y, where there always are watches with movement that doesn't work. There you can get a case from an old VC for less money! Check what movement it has been before or which are in and broken, then you are home! Not a genuine VC since the numbers on the movement and case not are the 'right' ones, but you have a cheap and very personal 'VC' Cheers Doc
I've learned from some of the best over the years, ;-) (nt)
