Can you help me identify this watch please? I think it is the most handsome watch I have ever seen and would like to know more about it. This is a watch I own, an inheritance from an uncle who bought it in Nigeria in the late 1940s ( I think '47 or '48). He was working there on a civil engineering project and I understand he bought it as an 'export model' specifically made for overseas markets. He bought 2 watches, this one plus another which had a smaller (sub-second?) dial which he gave to his brother. No documentation still exists. I cannot find an image of this model anywhere on the internet despite extensive searching, although I once took it into a London watch repairer 20+ years ago who said it was reasonably rare and was probably an early Seamaster model, but it obviously has no Seamaster lettering in the usual positions. It has the 'bumper' sound and action and is an automatic winder, but again no indication of this as on later models. Case is steel - hands, 12/3//6//9 and hour markers are in gold and the face is a sort of light grey 'mother of pearl' colour. Watch went for a clean up 10+ years ago as it was stopping occasionally despite being worn but all paper work has since been misplaced or lost. From memory no indication of age or model was given. The glass crown and winder were replaced as the original was scratched and supposedly the winder was damaged (but I didn't get the original back which annoyed me a lot as I did not want to lose it!). Original strap replaced a long time ago. Works perfectly now although I rarely wear it, but would like to wear more hence my interest in it. I am not interested in value as it is not for sale, but would be interested in comments about a value for insurance purposes. Any help you can give gratefully received. Thanks.
