    Hi all,
    Need your expertise again.
    Found one watch, could not find a reference number.
    Form what I've been told it is a 1942 military watch from ww2.
    Any ideas?
    As always, I will appreciate any help.

    Open it and you will see... this is the only way to be sure - could also be 23.4 SC

    Or if it is a post 1942 watch, it could well be a R.17.8 SC (created in 1942). We definitely need to see what's Inside!

    Not sure, but there are plenty of manufacturers who put square movements into round cases around this time.

    civil version of the 2179 mil watch from 1945. a few were issued and engraved for the US army in Germany after WW2; many were sold in PX and other channels as civil versions. mvmt. will be 30T2, if that reference. kind regards. achim

    I highly doubt this is a Ref. 2179. The caseback isn't beveled the same way:

    Very different. Ref. 2179 should be 34-35mm. This one looks smaller, maybe 32-33mm.

    Civilian watch to be sure, but my guess is the 17.8 movement with a spacer as shown above.

    I think you are absolutely right.33mm case and spacer for the movement.
    What do you guys think is the fair price for it?
