    That's right, three dots are missing. That was additional warranty for me that the (perfect) dial wasn't repainted. I got it from Vietnam, Saigon. Leftover from the war?

    Could be, the watch would have been new (I'm guessing) around the time the french gave up their interest in Vietnam in the mid-50s

    It's hard to tell from the photo, but it looks like it says france at the bottom of the dial. Quick checking seems to show a few references to Wakmann France.. but I haven't really dug into it at all. I was guessing 50s mainly because that's what the one Wakmann on 24hourwatch.info is guessed to be :) ... oh.. one of the variations there looks a bit like yours.

    Wakmann, as many other American brands, assembled watches from European components, mostly Swiss and French. Only the main Wakmann 24h model was present in 1959 and 1964 catalogs. Other versions came later is my guess.

    24h wristwatches were secondary priority for Wakmann. In catalogs - and often in ebay - you can find many wonderful 24h cockpit board clocks. Wakmann was official supplier for USAF.

    I think I'm gonna write a review on this Wakmann wristwatch soon :)

    Yema Worldgraf. This is of course a matter of taste but Worldgraf is a nice example of 60s French design and highly collectable item from quality watchmaker brand.

    BTW. Very convenient. My local time is 12:55, second time zone is set to Sydney (Australian Open :) ) and there is 21:55 (Nadal and Federer are playing).
