Watch Analog watch Watch accessory Fashion accessory Jewellery Watch Watch accessory Analog watch Strap Fashion accessory I've been wearing this watch for last two weeks and I really like it.
-big stainless steel case(37mm;takes 20mm strap);good runner powered by bidynator 17 jewels movement
Bidynator- meaning of Felsa690 or Felsa415-which one is in there?
It's hard to find any info about Leonidas watches-the company used to specialized in chronographs and then in 50' or 60' became a part of Heuer-that's all I know.

cheers

yeah-your right!!!!it's 415 so the watch was produced between 1942-1947
if so there's a great chance that's a military watch(?)

Well any watch can have been used by military personnel and these 1940's watches are produced in a military style. But a military issue watch will have been marked as such (military forces are on the whole quite obsessive about marking their property) and civilian purchased watches used by military personnel are often marked with their military number to reduce the chances of it getting 'lost.' So a watch with no markings probably wasn't used as a military watch, but it could have been.

That isn't a 1940's caseback - I'd say more 1960's which throws your dating off considerably.
