Bulova remains a premier watch brand today, while the others have disappeared. The watch is marked, A. 10 AK CSH, ORDER NO.Of course, the war ended in 1945, so the contract for additional watches was cancelled. Because this watch was never issued, it avoided the rough wear and harsh conditions that it would, otherwise, have encountered during the war and survives in remarkably good shape, in contrast to most surviving WWII pilots watches. This watch is 100% authentic. It was serviced by the recognized top expert in A-11 watches in the U. He replaced the old crystal with an authentic period replacement crystal from his new old stock. This watch comes with two WWII period straps. A watch like this would have originally been issued with a canvas strap. Its original owner obviously had small wrists.
If you simply wish to display this watch, the original leather strap has a fantastic period look. However, you may also like to wear this piece of history. This watch is the perfect balance between authenticity and attractiveness. There is some plating loss on the lugs, the sides of the case, and the crown.However, the case back is perfect, and the parts that are visible while the watch is worn remain in overall very good condition. And, as previously stated, this watch has ALREADY been serviced by an expert to ensure that it is in good running order. This is a beautiful piece of WWII aviation history that you can proudly wear daily!
