    the seller said to me...
    MOVEMENT is an ETA 2824-2 AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT FULLY JEWELED
    i think it's automatic not hand wind mouvement.....
    but it is not the most important thing

    .




    Here’s my JLC Mk 11 version of what I think it’s the same watch. This one is a manual and the only thing that lets it down is the mineral crystal. I’ve changed the original spring bars with these beefy ones. I only got it recently and love wearing a small watch for a change.

    It was second hand so as cheap as chips. The only way to go.

    Thumbs Up I have the same watch and swapped out the mineral...

    crystal for an acylic one. It transforms the watch. I have been meaning to add a Yao dial and hand set on this for a while. This watch has been just super.

    wow...
    your watches are simply amazing....
    i hope to have mine soon......

    The version i bought is :
    Water resistant to 5 ATM The watch also measures a grand 49.5 mm lug to lug and is fitted with an ETA 2824-2 Swiss caliber movement.
    On the case back are faux BRitish RAF ORD NUMBERS.
    Manufactured Switzerland by A. Wajs the design member of the Swiss watch company of Ollech & Wajs.

    All this watches are equipped with crystal or acylic glass from the factory?

    I have no idea because in the auction i have not found any specification..

    It will have a mineral crystal

    If the pictures are from your auction, you appear to have bought it from Howard of Westcostime, one of our forum sponsers. That's where I got mine as well. Good guy!
