Hello. I found this old watch and wanted some help identifying it (year, style, make, value, etc.) Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

given the small crown style, I'd say 1960's. But, you are going to have to up up the back to determine the serial numbers and to see if the gold or gold filled.

The chain should also be checked for gold or gold filled. Should be a stamping at the ends.

Hi, I would say your watch is mid to late 1940's Wadsworth 10K gold filled case with Longines 17L movement...chain is probably gold filled but needs to be checked. Nice wood box! As for value you can check online sales for similar watches and maybe add a bit due to completeness and that your watch seems to be in nice condition.
