Additional Information: 

This watch is a gift from a friend on WUS, Sdasurrey(Scott). It is in immaculate condition, as he has had it serviced recently. The case is wear free, and looks like new. I have not taken it apart, so the movement is a guess, but most Commanders use the one I post as present in the watch. The crown is probably not the original, and the watch differs from the "F" advert in the hands only.

Thank you so much Scott!

Looks correct so far but would like to see the movement as well to confirm the 30 jewels. Agree with Commander 'F'.

Not a chance, Stephen!

I don't have a crystal lift for a start, and it's just been serviced.

Thanks Geoff, he is a great guy and has only been collecting vintage watches for 7 months.

Scott gifted five watches to members of WUS, ones he felt were not for him, but were all top quality vintage watches. His others are really top-notch watches going back ninety years, Omegas, Longines, and solid gold chronos and rare trench watches.

He chose to gift watches to people who had helped him the most in choosing his watches in the collection, with advice and direction. A very generous and genuine guy. A little like you fellers!

His collection can be seen here:
