My 81 year old uncle mailed me two watches. A 1953 Bulova which he bought new and a watch marked "Cornell" and "Incabloc" which belonged to his wife's late husband who died in an auto accident in 1952. The gentleman was wearing the Cornell when he passed away and it has had a shattered crystal for the past 60 years.
I intend on wearing both watches from time to time as both still run and keep good time. I am going to have my watchmaker look at both tomorrow and also switch out the Spiedel expandable band on the Bulova with black leather to match the dial.
Does anyone have any info on the "cornell" watch? It is a Swiss made watch in the "Military Style" that you see lots from that era.
