Of course it makes sence....named after "Florence Nightingale". Nurses watch with the centre second hand for taking one's pulse.

Rev Rob...were these later "swiss" 6af's still FHF eubauch?  I remember Mr Wayne Hanley had noted they may not have been FHF by 1934/35 or so....  I guess I could remove dials on my examples from this period and find out for myself...but thought you might know off the top of your head.  Thanks
