    ID Great Uncles Watch? I scoured the site but might have missed something

    Many years back as a child I inherited this watch while cleaning the house after my great uncles death. Anyone that might know where it came from is long gone. He lived in Minneapolis and retired from some company there. He also served in WW2. Any info would be great!

    No clue. Need to see the movement if possible.

    The hands and unbreakable mainspring suggest late 50's.

    Because it says so many things on the dial it's most likely a generic Swiss made watch that had a logo put on. If you get it open there should be a 3 letter import code on the balance cock and this will tell who imported it to USA.
