    It should be perfect for Stan's next book.

    Yep, that is the pre-September 1917 version of the Waltham Depollier "KHAKI" Trench Watch because it does not have the "double clinched bezel".

    Very nice early model.

    I bought one myself just yesterday that still has the original Depollier Clasp and "No Fuss" Khaki Webbing Strap!

    Radger - easy to open up the thread to see a great watch like your red '12' Stauffer - much less gold and centre seconds ! I was bidding on a Stauffer trench last year (silver...) and wished I carried through - and pin set as well like the Moser - best regards on a Sunday ! Scott

    Elgin - Trench Watches of the Great War - WRUW

    I actually just saw this ww1 pretty unique trench ending today from Edinburgh - very large for this era 39mm engine turned silver dial no crown, pin set a restoration project of course....


    Movement seems to have been cannibalised for jewels ? 7 jewels maybe originally ?

    Elgin - Trench Watches of the Great War - WRUW

    This is stretching the definition of trench but consistent with thread jacking and a 'Scott Eberhard Weakness Alert' - 1920-30 nickel 42 mm Eberhard - triple signed but supposedly from EB commentary re dialed ? I spent an hour comparing it to all the Eberhard pics I have in every detail and it doesn't seem re dialed- dodgy Latin country but ok seller ?

    Seems like an interesting watch.....cathedral hands seem somewhat unique for an Eberhard which are usually spear, breguet or dauphine ? But I have seen Eberhard trenches with these hands....

    Articulated lugs, single button chrono......Before the Valjioux 65 or Eberhard 1600 movement was used with the extra slide button....signature looks right but is a little unique below the hands not above..... Hallmark signature looks right but I'm just not showing the pic close up...

    Interesting ....Scott

    PS - anyone want to comment ???!!!

    Yes on the bids Adam - i compared it to all the pics I have and it looks right with patina and as I said the seller says its re dialed so what tells you it's redialed ? S

    Other than the seller comments on the redial..... - since I started this hobby I have become dial 'purer and purer' - I know your simplest advice is 'buy the best, NON REDIALED vintage watch you can for the money'....so at times it seems harder in some cases to be sure....what really is a re dial.... Trying to start a company with no income buying a watch at these levels is..... Questionable..or divorce precipitating.....but I haven't seen an Eberhard like this ever....
