Hi guys.. I really didn't want to open a new thread, however after so many hours of search I did not reach at any conclusion.

I got this as not working.. The winder was stuck, I cleaned it and works like a charm.
I can't find anything about the movement. is it an ETA? is it at least a rotary? As far as I know rotary movement used to have the brand sign on the movement which is missing at mine.

Is a 17 jewels manual swiss made. As far as I know the present Rotary is not what used to be and is mainly using chinese movements
Is this worth keeping or should I resell it?

Thanks a lot. Exactly what I was looking for. I ve seen the 140 mark under the balance wheel and I gave a search on ranfft.de but didn't find any movement alike.
As it appears is not a vintage watch but just an old one.

I am not sure whether Rotarys have model names. As for the movement, it is a classic FE (France Ebauches) Cal. 140-1. The finissage is even the same as in Christoph Lorenz:
