Additional Information

This was my great-grandfather's watch and was passed on to me last year.  The band is obviously not the original and needs replaced.  I do not know if the movement is original to the watch or a replacement (but I have no reason to believe it was replaced).  I'm thinking it's a Time King based on photos I've seen from other years.  I really don't care about the value of this watch, but I would like to invest in getting it restored.
