I was on my way home from a "getaway", called in at a local auction and found this. Even though it is a reasonable size for its peroid (27 by 37 mm woc)It feels very flimsy,its amazing it survived id think. Holding this watch its hard to believe that 13 years later they were manufacturing the sub. Anyway its not my cup of tea but I thought some members might be interested in seeing it.

SORRY no SERPICO Y LAINO





Cheap gold filled case



I have wonder if this guy might have died in the war as it was in a box marked "Bills 21st watch".



Not sure what movement it is as I know nothing abut these watches



I knew "Handley" made cases for both Rolex and Tudor in Australia, never seen a "Handley" bracelet.

It's a Reberg 10.5 ligne likely. These were pretty much gone by the late 20's...early 30's.

Called the "Whitney" (after Eli). Similar tonneau-shaped case.

I love pieces like this (Rolex), they has something more interesting than value---Charm. Nice pick-up.
