Cool watch otteray, it looks like it's hardly been worn.

We've debated in the past the Set-O-Matic as a designation and/or a model name. I don't really see this watch in the second advert. I'm going along with Jaroslav

It was running really fast, gaining an hour or more in just a day.

The mainspring was replaced during cleaning; now it keeps really good time, and looks really nice.

I just noticed; it think it says 'ETA' near the hairspring in the photo, in an odd font.

$95 for the cleaning and mainspring replacement, at the most (or only) reasonable watch repair shop in the  Monterey Bay area that I could locate.
