As usual I am puzzled by a watch which has Property of Military Aviation on the Dial and Automobile Regulatuer on the non magnetic movment.

Does anyone have any ideas of what this watch would have been used for by the French Military presumeably the Air Force.

Any clues as to who may have manufactured this piece or movement would also be appreciated.

Many Thanks

Neil

It is a pre-WWII (and maybe pre-WWI) dashboard watch... mounted so the crown sticks down through the bottom of the dash. I can't get much detail off the pics. Nice find!

L'Aviation Militaire isn't the French Air Force, that was known as Établissement Militaire d'Aviation, then Aéronautique Militaire until 1933 then it became the Armée de l'Air.

It's Belgian.
