    Hey guys,

    I'd need some help with this one here.

    To me it looks all good, except for the crown of course.

    Only thing I'm a bit worried about is the writing on the caseback. Only have seen one before, where the writting was a bit smaller...and not so shaky.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers s-l1600.jpg s-l1600-3.jpg s-l1600-4.jpg s-l1600-2.jpg s-l1600-1.jpg

    It's a Royal Air Force or Air Ministry. Do you have the extract of archives?

    I like it. Enjoy it :thumbsup:

    Military watches experts could tell you something about caseback.

    It's copasetic, save for the crown. Mov't correct, caseback for 2292 ref. with Pheon is correct.

    The case back looks OK to me. There are plenty of examples online to compare. It isn't a pilots watch, a navigators maybe. The lugs are delicate on the 2292 case and are often shortened after one breaking so take care with them if you buy/bought it.

    Looks good to me including the engraving on the case back. As has already been said, the crown is a later replacement.
