Just as an FYI, and added as an update to the presentation, I have since confirmed that the movement in this watch is a Sellita SW-200. Many thanks for your patience, not to mention your comments below. - DED, RSF/5Oct17

Congrats on your badass gift! I love that yellow dial and I was always under the impression those were a pain in the butt to get fixed. Just curious, what did you have to do and how long did it take?

The original problem was a broken (or, in some cases, bent) winding stem that prevented you from being able to wind the watch and forced you to rely on the automatic function to both wind and build up your power reserve. In the case of this watch, both the stem and an attachment piece had to be replaced, which took only a few minutes to fix. The 'long pole in the tent' was the parts, which took the better part of four weeks to arrive from the good folks at the Invicter Partz Bin (Hyuck!)...now there's a shock, eh? ;)
