My Grandfathers Retirement Watch from 1959

Original box and strap. Anybody recognize or know anything about this watch?

Thank you. He was the Chief of Staff at a VA Hospital in Massachusetts when he retired in 1959. The back is engraved and dated.

Very nice. Amazing their old boxes wear better than the new ones they've made during the 80's and 90's lol. I love the way that strap has worn throughout the years, looks awesome.
