History & Notes
Another of my 'Medicus/Military Aquamatics . Undoubtedly supplied by AAFES (Army & Airforce Exchange Service) around Q1 1944 Pearl Harbour. These Aquamatics are becoming increasingly rare and this one shows some scars of an honourable past!
Examine the photos very carefully; they form the majority of this collectible 75 years old Swiss military watch's description.
The Croton Aquamatic will be carefully wrapped (see my Feedback and bid with confidence!) and shipped via Colissimo Insured & Signed For.
