Hello Fellow watch lovers..... First time post in this section and was wondering if anyone can enlighten me further about this watch. This Wilka found its way into my collection and not really sure how it got there. I think it may have belonged to my Grandfather who served for Australia in WW1. I'm actually about to get it serviced (no restoration)and start wearing it (in a rotation) as it works great and keeps reasonably good time and I love vintage . Anyhow Wilka founded in Geneve 1902 by Wilhelm Kaufmann. I'm guessing he just commisioned someone to make watches for him but not sure...?? any ideas? Any information about the dating and the movement would be appreciated. The hallmarks are for silver - not sure what the zero and comma are before the silver mark 935. There are various watchmakers inscriptions on the back which I will list. Not sure what some of them mean other than obviously some dates of service. Thanks for looking and for thanks in advance for any feedback.
