it is mint still in box never used was given it when i was 5 and put up i well put up some pics when i find where i put the my cameraI would expect a watch for the US Bicentennial year to be a wind-up. Quartz was still exotic/expensive or digital, and self-winding is just silly in a pocket watch (yes I know some companies make them, but it's still not practical).
If you can post pictures of your own watch, we can get more of an idea of the quality and origin.
Interesting! So I guess for the Bicentennial watch we would probably be looking at a low-grade Swiss wind-up wristwatch movement (EB, BFG, Semag, Ronda etc) possibly cased up in the US.
