I need some help identifying this watch.
It has the strap, black leather , 24.48 mm wide, smaller leather strap 11.48 mm wide to go through the lugs and snaps in back.
Dial marked: PATRIA
Movement marked:
under winding wheel is hard to read but looks like: SADA WATCH CO.
2 ADJ (ADJ is underlined)
Inside back cover is marked:
SADA WATCH CO. (not sure the first letter is a S)
hallmarked: (top looks like a crown) .0935 & lion (sterling silver)
Back of case marked: G A A
I can post more pictures if needed.
Thanks for your help,

    Hi Dave,
    I looked in all my watch books and yes Sada did make at least one size 12s watch, which is possibly what you have. Yours is a sterling silver, wire lug, military wristwatch possibly from the WW1 era. I like it. I am not quite sure what "GAA" stands for.
    Thanks for sharing it,
