So I'm home visiting for the holidays and my Dad notices the Omega watch I'm wearing and tells me a story about this old Rolex he used to have and wear until I at 3 years old took it and kept throwing it at the floor. It seems to have survived the throws onto the carpet, but when i progessed onto cement, the watch didn't survive too well. He kept the clock buried in a drawer and I made him go find it. The watch is at least 40 years old and is an Oyster Perpetual model. In the picture it looks gold due to the lighting, but it is actually silver. The crystal face is gone and it's awfully dirty. Think a watch repair shop can save it? Any idea what it might cost to get it fixed or how much it's worth?
