Everything fits for a 1945 Conrad except the dial. Any ideas?

Nice looking watch Kim!

If you don't mind.  Go ahead and edit your watch here and ad all that nice information on the movement you've taken such a nice picture of:

Movement is:

17 Jewels

8AH model

"Triangle" - date stamp to indicate a 1945 watch

Also your "case shape" would be Square.  It's your movement that's round.

Yep, The 'dot dash' Dial is perfect for the 'CONRAD'

Watch doesn't work. I have worn it anyway its so pretty. Do you think it could be repaired and would it be worthwhile?

Kim, there's no way to determine "online" exactly whats wrong with the watch. That being said, you can take it to a watchmaker (not a jewelry store) or contact Mike (Timemachines, one of our members and a master watchmaker) or any other watchmaker (we have several really good watchmakers) that are members and ask them for help on repair.
