Hi everyone my name is David and I got into watch collecting 2 years ago when I bought my first watch a movado museum classic with the 11 diamonds on the dial. It's still the nicest watch that I own but I'd like to get into watchmaking and restoring them for myself. I recently bought this Rytime watch that I believe has wither an 1187 or 1194 movement that's nonworking at the moment to be my first watch to restore. I'm wanting to strip the old chrome plating off and replate the brass case in 14k gold and replace the old worn out metal band with a nice black leather strap. I was told that this watch was made in the 40s but I can't find any data to back up this claim from what information I have gathered online the Rytime brand was made and sold by a jeweler based in New York but again I have no way to back up this claim. Any information about it would be amazing!
