I was told I should post this here to find out information about this watch.
My great grandfather was a pilot before, during, and after WWI for the Germans. At various times he was a pilot for A & Aviatik A.G. According to family folk lore (my grandfather, but who knows how much he is actually remembering), my great grandfather would wear this watch when he flew and his pocket watch when he was on the ground. At some point in its history it was fixed and a new crown installed. Sometime in the 60s I guess.
Some information about him.

Can anyone tell me about this watch?
