I recently bought what I think is a Longines WW2 watch. I was after a 6B/159 marked Longines but think this watch is similar with the exception of the hands and the absence of any markings. I would love to be able to obtain some of the 'droplet' hands and have them fitted and also change the strap to something more contemporary, to get a nice contrast between old and new. I was interested in Atacama straps but they appear to only be available for size 20mm+. Any ideas for an 18mm watchstrap which I think this is? It would be brilliant if someone was able to provide me with some info i.e. age of watch. Also if anybody knows where I can get those droplet hands and who would be able to fit them. One last thing i am slightly surprised by how loud it is...click, click! Is this normal for watches of this period? Thanks in advance.....
