New strap to match this beautiful dial. I swear trying to find a strap to match a watch is harder than all hell. But fun

I just noticed the year of production... 1943... Wow.

Fantastic that this watch preserved the looks and that it is still functioning perfectly.

I am Happy with it... :D

It is amazing after browsing through all these pictures how "normal" and "correct" 34mm looks as a watch size. Hard to believe how large watches have grown in size today.

Very Nice David. Is it 34? That's big for a 1920s (?) cushion!
