This is my first post in the Vintage forum, and I am starting right off with some questions... :thanks
Today I discovered a watch of my grandfather-in-law's uncle, this vintage marathon piece.
From the size and the design I'd guess its from the 50s, and because of the description on the back "Waterproof, Antimagnetic" I assume it was a soldier's watch.
Strange, that I did not find any information about vintage marathons anywhere in the web, let alone anything about this specific model. The marathon website dates the production back to the early 1900s...
Is this a genuine watch of the same company that is known as "Marathon Watch Co." today?
Is it possible to give any more information about the source or purpose of it?
some quick n dirty pics:
Thanks for any information, I am happy to give more detail if required!
