    Question Help identifing CDN Air Force watch

    This watch was formerly my grandfather's but has now been passed on to me. He was a navigator in the Royal Canadian Air Force (flying Catalinas over the North Atlantic looking for subs) and supposedly these watches were issued to all navigators at the time. No pics of the innards as I'm deathly afraid to open it.

    :thanks

    It's Swiss... beyond that it offers no clues without seeing the insides...

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    ...or take it to a watchmaker and have him opened for you, then take a pic of it. Also, he he opens it he'll see if it need a cleaning
