Effeminate...........with a name like Trojan or Conqueror. That's quite a stretch there Plains! LOL This watch was worn by Genghis Kahn!

I'm pretty sure I saw Patton wearing one in an old photo.  I think your right Wayne.... total caveman watch.

Nice, Very nice.

Wayne,

Did You notice the similarity in the Trojan's Dial to the Nighthawks?

* both Dials above are Nighthawks, they're identical IMO.

Something tells me.... probably not. Heh...

I've still yet to post up my Nighthawk vs. the civilian counterpart I found.  I'll have to maybe see about that late tonight.  It's been so nice out lately I've not tried to say inside at all.

Hey Wayne ,

That's the Trojan, and it is a man's watch. Just picked one up myself. Your right, pretty scarce indeed, I've only ever seen 4 in 9 years and I bought 3 of them. Sold one fully restored for $350.00, one had a broken lug and had to be scraped for parts and now this one that I'll be keeping hold of.
