    I am looking for information on this recently discovered Muros Watch. Unlike anything I have personally ever seen. Suspect it was from WWII era as it was possibly worn by 1 of 4 male family members serving in Europe during that period.
    Description is as follows:
    -Single hand only from center position (no second hand)
    -Second hand seems to be located at the 9 o'clock position
    -Dial face is military olive green with gold numbers and letters
    -Dial face has odd spiral starting at the 4 o'clock with numbers along the entire length of the spiral
    -Watch back is completely smooth and void of any discription or lettering
    -Crown and push button on left side of casing
    -"12 Rubis" at 12 o'clock under "Muros"
    -"TELEMETRE - KM" above 12 o'clock position

    Note the second hand in each picture in a different location - the watch actually works after some 60-70 years!

    I can only imagine what this watch has been through as it is in very used condition. Thanks
