    From Billy's book Zero Hour it said there were 8 maker's of these Omega, CYMA, Henry Moser, Tissot, Rode, Tavannes, Zenith, Ulysse Nardin any one get all 8 like the WWW dirty dozen ? I think this would be a tougher one to get all 8 they come up less.

    So a good possibility these were used by US WW1 pilots.

    Found a topic here were some one all most got all eight just missing the Tavannes. I think getting all eight would be way tougher than the dirty dozen.

    Just ordered a Boettcher strap. Ever order a strap before you get the watch in the mail the strap that's coming with the watch just don't look right on this watch.

    As it should be, considering it's probably an enamel dial...If you don't drop it or do anything silly with it, it will last longer than your/our lives.
