I see I have been beaten to the trench watch display!

Here is a screw case offering from 1914, which I am quite confident about, having found similar cases of the same age with very close serial numbers.


The strap is a bit greener, try this:


The crown sets and winds, so it will serve for a while.  It probably used to have a crown like this:

Have a great Sunday guys...stay warm, and frost free  :)

I'm not medically qualified, but looking at your arm in this picture, I would recommend some vitamin D capsules.

From the not-so-good old days of the GDR comes this Ruhla with its UMF 24-32, a movement which could charitably be described as “unsophisticated”.

Dating from around 1970, it’s a pretty dire specimen but if you were an ordinary citizen rather than one of the “more equal” elite, then your choices would probably have been limited to home-grown efforts like this.

I am wheezing out loud!

I guess if that was my arm I'd be the first one to think about going to see a doctor, but since my arm is neither foam filled, nor crushed velvet covered I think the medical emergency is more upholstery/haberdashery related.

I thank you all the same for your concerns over my welfare. :biggrin:

I love the style of these older watches, I just think they'd look tiny on my large ish wrists and the fact that I'm always wearing 42mm+ also. They are lovely looking. 

There's a chap on eBay makes marriage watches for the wrist out of old pocket watches.
