Additional Information: 

Inheirited from my wife's grandfather.  Came with the original mesh band, but it was too small for my wrist so I had a jeweler replace it with a similar, larger one.  It's in great shape, but needs a small amount of maintenance...it loses about 2 minutes per day, and I think the winding stem may have a slight bend - it's a little sticky when winding or setting.

Anybody have references for a reliable, reasonably-priced service for a tune-up?  It took me a long time to figure out exactly what I have, and now I'm a little protective of it.

We have positively ID'ed the picture of the watch, regardless of a date or not, in the comments field.  I'm happy to assign checks based on what ever rules or even guidelines are in place.  I guess they just were not clear guidelines, I hadn't read the guidelines thoroughly,  or I was taking this (and by extension myself) too seriously.  :)    Most likely a function of all three.
