My mom just recently showed me this watch that was my fathers. He had left it behind 30 years ago to sit motionless in an envelope. Obviously handed down from my grandfather as his name is etched in the back, as well as "Indianapolis 500 winner 1959 - Second place 1960."
It wasn't hard to find that this was a Gallet Multichron but I hadn't seen the WWW Leader Card symbol in a google search or image search. A little more digging and It seemed that Roger Ward came in 1st at the Indy 500 in '59 and second in '60. He drove the Leader Card 500 roadster built by mechanic A.J. Watson. For the Leader Card Racing team owned by Bob Wilke. Three Ws.
It must have been a gift as my grandfather was a news writer.
Has anyone seen something like this before?
