This is my favourite watch which was recovered from 2 boxes from an old house which were being taken to the dump. It has a Longines 9.35movement from 1925 by serial movement in a North American Wittnauer case. I understand it was illegal to import gold watches above 14K at that time.
The dial is as found and shows shadows of the hand locations from the radium over the years spent in that attic. Turns out a previous owner was the town watch repairer.
