My master watchmaker has performed a full inspection and servicing on this watch. The watch was completely disassembled, the appropriate parts were cleaned in the ultrasonic and then oiled using the finest quality Swiss Moebius oils. The mainspring was replaced. It was regulated and is keeping good time.
This watch passed my testing for water resistance, so it is safe for regular use near water (washing hands, dishes, etc). It has not been depth tested. With all vintage watches, though, it is a good idea not to submerge; water resistance is neither warranted nor guaranteed due to the age of the piece.
