    Very nice... the dial is in great shape but you can still see the patina. Neat logo too!

    "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!

    Superb! Looks just right.

    Is it an Helvetia movement?

    Looks like a nice unmolested watch.
    I imagine this would be a mil issue? I have seen the
    term trench watch used to describe fixed lug transitional pieces from
    pocket to wrist application. Is this considered a trench watch
    or is this for navigational use?
    Sorry for the questions, I usually collect 1950-80s watches and have v little experience with real military type watches.
    Thanks for the interesting post.

    Peace,
    Scott

    I bought this directly from my watchmaker.His dad owned it before he died couple years ago.

    This is certainly not a trench watch-this is real aviation watch from 1930-is.

    Hi -

    Absolutely correct: the movable bezel with the mark at the 12 is the hallmark of virtually all aviation watches from this time period.

    And it really is in nice shape. Outstanding!
