Nice gift - should I fix it?

I have a Ethan Allen (on face of clock) "Colonel Steeple Mantel Clock"(says on paper in side the clock) with German works.

It was given to me and I have looked and looked for information on it on the internet but have not found much. I doubt it is real old but it's nice and I was wondering if it was worth fixing.

I think it is wound too tight. The pendulum and chimes are very pretty. Wuersch is the name on the clock works and it says made in West Germany 131-030, NO 101 Jewels, unadjusted under that.

There is also a picture painted on the glass front of "The Constitution" sailing ship. A paper in side says it is a reproduction of an 1843 clock. There is the number 76 above the German name on the clock works (maybe year made?).

Approximate value would be appreciated to determine if I should get it fixed. I do like the look of the clock.
Thanks for your help.

I obtained this clock in a sale. I have looked for it on the internet but cannot find it. I don't think it is antique but it may be vintage.

The clock body is marked as a Fifth Avenue Crystal L.T.D
24% lead crystal. Made in Taiwan

The Quartz movement is marked on the front: Fifth Avenue Crystal and on the back: DM-6001 Shontek, quartz no (0) jewels unadjusted

It stands 3inches tall 2.5inches wide and is about 1.5inches thick. The clock is round and rest on a flat base with two small legs. It is all one solid piece. The quartz movement slides out to change batteries or adjust the time. In addition to the hour and minute hands it also has a second hand.It uses a E90 battery to power it.

It works just fine, keeps corect time and gongs when its supposed to. It's a 31 day wind up with the key and 2 holes for chime spring and main spring. On the front is says:

SHVED AND ALSO SAYS MADE IN KOREA.

I just love it no mater what but I would be very interested in know any thing about this that someone may know of. I don't think it's an antique though. Any way Thanks for helping.
