and don't ask what I was doing in a junk heap :)
I am a very new lady collector, I just started getting into vintage watches, they are so amazing...
so anyway this thing was literally in a pile of trash that was going to get thrown out. I think it's that black dial military WW2 Helbros, right? isn't that an orginal radium dial???
the thing that confuses the heck out of me is that the case is signed "Elgin"???? At first I just thought well it's in the wrong case, but it seems to fit in there so very well.... ??? anyone have any thoughts?
Movement is marked Helbros "820"
Also, how would I go about getting a new stem and crown? How do you order something like that for something so old? I know how to replace stems, but I have no idea where / how one orders those. Please help!!
