I have inherited a ladies chalet watch marked 14K on reverse

Customer Question

I have inherited a ladies chalet watch marked 14K on reverse of watch- cannot see a model number- it has a gold bracelet strap with a bark clasp numbered 3/000. its in need of repair and cleaning as it's no longer working and glass covering fallen out along with 3 circular diamonds and 1 baguette, which are missing. Is it worth repairing?
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Do you know how old the bracelet is?
Customer: No. From images on line maybe between 1940's and 1960's. It has a rectangular face.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: I have no idea. It's not in its original box.

Chalet is on the face and 14k is on the back. The only other marking I can see is on the clasp 3/000
