Beautiful 6309-7049 and a great history with you.

If it were mine, I'd make sure to get new gaskets (search for VTA 6309 on your favorite auction site) for the case back, crown, bezel - you wouldn't want to get this one near water until then (if not anymore). If the gaskets haven't been replaced in more than 5 years, then it's been too long in my opinion and don't chance it being in water with a dial/handset this nice.

Regardless of whether it's running slow or fast, if you've never had the watch serviced in almost 40 years, it's due for one, all the oils inside are most likely dry by now.
