  1. Pilots' & Military watches
    Hi! Anyone know anything about this one? I've seem descriptions of similar watches on Ebay listed as WWII Wehrmacht watches, but haven't found this exact model. Not sure what's inside since I don't have a tool to open the octagonal case back. The patina on the dial is beautiful, but sadly It...

    My Longines Weems L2.608.4 is a reissue of a second-setting pilot watch made by Longines for the US Air Force during WWII. In 1929, US Navy Captain Phillip Van Horn Weems in conjunction with Longines (and Wittnauer) developed the Weems Second-Setting Watch for nautical navigation. It had...

    ...I read "somewhere" that there were other companies, besides Rolex, that gave watches to allied prisoners during WWII. Does anybody know which ones? (also any other related info - eg about other wars - would be welcome).
  5. Straps & Bracelets
    I purchased this strap at a local military show a few years ago. It appears to be hand made/machine stitched brown leather with a brass buckle that reads "@STA-WITH" or "@STA-WITE", hard to tell due to the corrosion. Any thoughts if this is a military watch band and/or from the 1940s?
