Pithy is a little scant on words today. To elaborate: the movement is a cheap Adolf Schild pin lever movement of this type (apparently also made by Ebauches Bettlach):

Watches of this type were often called "dollar" watches since they cost just that in the old days. They were intended to be affordable while compromising a little on quality so that the plebs also got a chance to own watches. As such, they were mass made and no, it isn't realistically worth spending much money on fixing them since there are still so many around to replace one you bust or wear out.
