    A couple pics of my Swiss watch. It has no brand name on it. The only marking is "fond acier inoxyable" on the back. Apparently this was common at the time. Circa 1940. Sorry about the crappy resolution my cell phone doesn't do good macro photos.

    Nice watch, but not military.

    Could you post a pic of the reverse of the Bulova A11 please ? I might be able to give you some more information on it regarding the contract .

    Tudor Heritage Black Bay and Chambray... In the office, though, not in some nice bar "Down Under".

    Pilot, I get the impression there might be a thing or two one could learn from you ;-)

    Enjoy and take care!

    Something different today:

    German-made 1960s Kienzle pocket watch. Loud as hell! Not really a valuable collectible but I think the hour fonts on the dial are just great.

    And finally, I have found something to put in the coin pocket of my jeans!

    Best regards,

    Ties
