This watch was passed down to me by my grandfather. He said it came from his father but not sure if that's where it started. I am here trying to find more info on it. Any info you might be able to share would be great.
I can upload more pic if any of you would like. It works great, keeps good time and still has a leather strap on it ( not sure if that's original ). There are tiny engravings on the inside of the back cover. They look to be just numbers but after some seem to be initials...
As I said any info or comments would be greatly appreciated...

Thank you for your time...

Chris

    Thank you very much for the info! I have been wondering about age for a long time. My grandfather died before I could get the history other than his father gave to him.

    Again thank you!
