    Thought you might have been! I could see in the pics it was running and as they were a house clearance type place I gambled they hadn't even checked the date change.

    Just an update on this. In the past I had noted a Helvetia DH watch marked 1007 with a civilian style dial and movement marked to General Watch Co. I though this was probably down to a movement and...

    That's a shame. I haven't seen that case before and it is possible it has had a movement and dial transplant, we know the dial has been fiddled with. Helvetia did use some cases without their...

    Thanks Simon.

    Interesting watch, the case does look very similar to a 3190, does it have a screw back? Inside case markings are not ones I've seen before. Are the two photos both inside the case...

    Hello Simon,

    Hope you had a chance to look at it over the weekend. I'd be interested to see what your watches serial number is as all the other Reliable/Finlay Straus date to 1943.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, by chance I happened to buy a Helvetia and the more I looked into them the more interesting a brand they became, involved with a lot of innovations during the 20s and 30s especially.

    Thanks Simon.

    I think that when these early Chronograph wristwatches came out there was no convention on what they should look like so they could do what they wanted, I'd love to find one.

    Thanks Bob.

    Interesting that this is USN but from the evidence I've seen this seems to be exactly the way the watches were designed to be used in the RN as well. 1927 also would be well after...

    Colour didn't look right and 99% of vintage black dialled Omegas are redialled but I though it was worth a go. Turned out to be genuine and pink gold which was why the colour...
