While purchasing a few chronometers at a private residence, the gentleman asked if I wanted to look at a couple of wrist watches. I said yes and here they are. Thanks to Neil for his consultation services.
The watches are from an 87 year old fellow who was a Doctor in the Navy. Each was issued to him while he was in service. The first is a 1965 #7928 in reasonable shape and the second is a 1979 #94110 in fine condition.
Neil and I are suspect of the dial on the 7928 however the Doctor did not remember ever having anything but services done on both. They were both recently serviced in Switzerland.

Comments welcome, Paul

These are great finds. I believe, as you and Neil do, that the 7928 has bee re-lumed...both dial and hands. Whoever did it did a great job except for the fact that he or she used the ugly modern green lume.

WOW. Very hot watches right now.

No doubt a re-lume on the one but the other is exactly as collectors like to find them.


In a word - PAYDIRT.

Thanks guys, the chronometers are already gone. A 21, 22, and a beautiful English from 1850.
