    I think it's an early 60's Incaflex...

    I posted this a couple weeks ago on another forum I'm a member of just as a show and tell type thread. Now that I've done a bit of googling, I'd like to put it out there and see if anyone else has ever come across any of these. I've got what I think is either a very late 50's or early 60's Wyler Incaflex Life-Guard. Snagged it as a travel watch as I travel fairly frequently for work and didn't want to always wear my Datejust. It's a gorgeous watch and since it looked so much like an explorer, I bought it.






    A cursory Google search shows more than a few examples but I haven't found one that has this dial sans date. Anyone else run into any of these in your watch travels? They seem like excellent, robust watches.

    Cheers!

    Wyler patented Incaflex in 1927

    Not sure of the date on Life-Guard - I think around Vietnam period or 1964
    R2758-MLF Classic Wyler Wrist Watch, "Incaflex", "Life Guard" model, All Stainless Steel, Excellent Condition, 17 Jewel, "Mercedes Hands", 100% All Original

    Nice watch

    Thanks for the info. I think I've seen that ad previously. Looks like there's a lot of different dials used on these throughout their production.

    Thanks again. Mine could be a redial I suppose. Looks well loved, but who knows?
