    I bought this watch in a small batch, primarily because of the engraving on the rear.
    After cleaning and polishing, I have got it working and put in a new crystal.

    I liked the engraved dedication, and decided to do some research on this. My research on the history of this watch and the amazing story of it's owner during WW1, who's ship was torpedoed within weeks of getting this watch, can be found on the military watch collector forum here:

    I hope you read and enjoy it, as it certainly is interesting and there are many more pictures and documents to be seen.
