The watch runs strong but is a bit fast by 1 or 2 minutes per day. Could use a service I'm sure but as I used it mainly for dress occasions, accuracy wasn't my biggest concern. The movement serial number dates the watch to around 1956/57. The rear is engraved to TP Bartle for 25 years of service to the Lykes Brothers Steamship Company. A Google search of his name revealed that he was vice president of this company in the 1960s and that he testified before Congress.

I encourage you to search his name. Not sure the buckle is original, because it is gold filled rather than solid gold like the case.
