Hi all

I recently acquired this , what I believe to be a " 1943 Airwarden "  It is 10k rolled gold plate bezel. Sterling base and stainless back. the watch is 26mm dia excluding the crown, 

the hands look as though they were once lumed , the hour hand red and the minute hand green.

Having looked more closely at the dial now l have cleaned it up the numbers are not luminous so l am thinking it may be a " Nighthawk ' not an airwarden

Members comments would be greatly apreciated.

When I bought it it was missing the stem and crown, which had snapped off. I have replaced both. The watch runs but definitely  needs a service
