I found this in antique mall for a decent price (then again, anything with a working balance under $50 is a decent price to me). Case looks military-ish to me (I'm assuming that's a british broad arrow mark, can't tell if that's a circle or a C around it), but I don't know enough about British procurement to know what it means (if anything). I know that just prior to WWII, the British military went on a purchasing spree in anticipation of the war, and a lot of simple swiss watches were picked up this way (usually marked GSTP though). The design of this one seems to fit the time period, but there's no lume or any obvious military markings on the dial/movement.
Dial is plastic; scuffed up a lot. The crown shows signs of very heavy plating (half is flaked off); the case back is quite worn as you can see. The hands are a deep blue with no sign of corrosion, and the dial is pristine. Almost too nice for the case. But there's only one set of screw marks on the case. The movement is a Unitas 245; nicely finished, but nothing exotic.
Anyone have deeper insight into British military pieces?
