Old Is Gold - Granny's Watch

Just to share some photos of my grandmother's old watch. I got it back from a local watchsmith. The old movement was in pretty bad shape but luckily the guy found the exact same movement (with slightly different finishing) in great shape to replace the original one. He also cleaned up the watch a bit.

I don't know much about Galco except that it was a brand under Gallet and probably came to Malaysia via the Japanese. I'm sure the watch is not worth much on the market but as with all family heirlooms, they are infinite in sentimental value.
