It is mechanical. Wear it for a few hours, the warmth and movement may get it going if it is merely gummed up from lack of use.
Very modest value. I usually buy these in 9 to 18k gold for a bit less than the melt value of the strap and case. Yours is gold filled, or rolled gold, similar to gold plating. Thicker than plating but still negligible gold content.

Thank you kindly afantiques! It must of been for a tiny wristed woman, I can't even wrap it around my wrist. I appreciate you taking the time to help, thanks!
My daughter is wearing it now. Let's hope it works.
