This is a fairly scarce and popular circa early 1940’s model produced during the WWII era in tribute to the patriotic spirit of the war era. No history of actual military use, this model nonetheless has always been a popular collector’s model with its bold, chunky, and substantial case design and distinctive model name. Typically seen with considerable wear and case back corrosion, the current example is in remarkably pristine condition.

Your purchase includes our signature fine leather watch pouch, ideal for travel and storage, a $55.00 value.
