Believe me, it was quite difficult finding anybody to identify this watch, but
thanks to the superb PaneristiÄôs Vintage reference section, I was able to
discover this watch which my father gave me about 4 years ago, He got
the watch in 1945 and wore it as a pocket watch all his working life.
CanÄôt be many thatÄôs been in the same family for 60 years.
Just back from service and working wonderfully.
My collection of one, and I will wear it often.
Many thanks Volker, for your help in authenticating the watch, and pointing
me in the right directions.
