Case Serial No.:
This is my father-in-law’s watch. He piloted B24 Liberators in WWII in the South Pacific. His plane, the Bird of Paradise, was shot down in early 1945; he broke his back and he and the other survivors were rescued by a PT boat. He lost three of his crew in the crash, including his best friend and navigator. Jim wore this every day until he died in 2006. I am curious to know if the Navigator model was made in 1947.
