Thank you all for the information. It seems to still work. I wound it and it's telling time. Not sure if it is still accurate or not. Does it look like it is in good shape? Does it have any value? Any details that I can't get from a google search?

I am torn about whether I should keep it or not. It's been in a drawer for 30 years so I don't think it was super important to my dad. It doesn't really fit me. But I'm not sure if I should sell it or keep it for sentimental reasons. It's so hard figuring out what I should keep and what I should put towards the house payments.
