    Arrived yesterday...

    My "new" vintage West End Watch Co. "Secundus" - Excerpt from the WestEndWatches.blogspot - "Secundus - many pocket watches but also wristwatches until WWII. Seems to have been the high end. I think the movement being steel was the selling point. Most military issued watches seem to be Secundus'."

    After arrival I had my local watchmaker take a look inside and he pronounced it "clean, oiled and well cared for."

    I bought the strap separately since I didn't have any straps with "open ends." After putting it on it "looks" and "seems" pretty secure. It's certainly not a daily wearer so I'm not really that worried, yet.
