    1917 German Soldier with MAMMOTH wristwatch

    Do I need more ephemera on wristwatches? No, really I have original pictures from 1900.
    That said - I posted this original photograph signed 1916 a while back. Shows an Austrian soldier from WWI with pistol and bayonet.
    Look closely his wrist - a wristwatch - and a pretty large timepiece - maybe 38mm or larger.

    Anyway take a look at this one - I can practically read the time from it

    This is not a wristlet, but an original MAMMOTH wristwatch.


    I liked it a lot!
