This is my wife's grandmothers watch. I wound it up and the balance wheel kicked right off and seems to be working fine. Her grandmother passed away a few years ago and this has just been sitting up. It's a nice little 14k watch with what I feel looks like the original spiedel band also. I was wondering is there a site where I can date this? Thanks for any help.

Maybe if the movement was make only that year. Find a watchmaker with years of experience.
Is there a reason that you keep directing me to a watchmaker just to get a date for this movement? I didn't ask about servicing the watch, merely dating it. So far, your main response has been for me to take my watch to a watchmaker. I'm hoping that there is actually someone that may have some knowledge of this movement that can help date it instead of having to track down a watchmaker to guess the date also.

Yes, it would be a good way to help date the watch.

I doubt that a watchmaker would be able to date the watch. For that, a collector with specialist knowledge would be just as helpful.

All I can say is that the movement is probably from the Adolf Schild AS 1012 family:

bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: AS 1012

...which lasted all the way into the 1970s (the last derivative being the Cal. AS 1977). The US import code on the movement (AXU) for Ditisheim (Solvil & Titus, Lucien Piccard) suggests that it is pre 1967, though.
