Hello there, this is my first post on your lovely forum- I recently ran across this Royal Flying Corps marked Swiss half-hunter pocket watch. Runs well, and is Sterling Silver with original chain. Problem is after some online research, I have come up empty in terms of what make/model it is, specific year, and even who would have owned something like this. It seems odd.
I understand the RFC did commission some manufacturers to make watches for them, but they were a lot less ornate, utilitarian, and marked with military identification marks. Any ideas from the fine folks here? I picked it up for 150.00USD, which is a tad high for a pocketwatch, but as I'm a WW1 buff of sorts, it can have lots of intrinsic value if it is actually authentic.
Cheers, thanks for looking, and happy New Year!
