Catalogue Note

This military watch was made for pilots of the Japanese Air Force. Historically interesting, it comes in a large case and features a big onion crown. During the human tragedy of the Second World War, a lot of these watches were lost and destroyed alongside their original owners, making it a rare occasion to come across one.
