I'm not even sure this is a watch (see attachments please) ... the previous owner was an elderly gentleman who, back in the day, was a skier for the US military, as well as an Olympic sub. The only marking I could find on it so far says it was "made in France", beyond that, I don't want to open it up yet to look at the movement ... if it even has one ! The "minute hand" is the only thing that moves when you use the cerated spin dial on the bottom. Otherwise the hour hand doesn't move at all. That little pin sticking out over the dial ... I wonder if that used to be a crown that was there ? Pushing or pulling on it accomplishes nothing. I don't know what the "feet" marking is supposed to indicate. At first I thought it could be some kind of altimeter, but I simply don't know. I got it at an estate sale and tried to glean some information, but this was the best I could do. The back side has a sticker that is mostly torn off, which says "Property of John (something or other), from a city in New York". The sticker info is typed on it.
If this is easily identifiable by someone, then awesome. Otherwise, I'm wondering if it was some kind of standard issue item ?
Thanks to anyone who can solve this mystery. I tend to pick up odds and ends like this which I can't identify lol :)
