    About 15 years ago I saw a Tri-Compax and I tought that it was one of the best looking and technical watch I've ever seen, for such a low price ! So I dedicated myself in getting as many as I could before they become untouchable...
    And the fact that they were made in the 40' era turns me on, what a history !

    For a bomb timer - probably not the cairelli you are thinking of

    I'm going with "pretty good re-dial." I don't like the script, and I don't like the radial orientation of numbers in the seconds sub-dial, among other things. If I'm right and it's a re-dial, I would say someone paid a little too much. And the days and months are, of course, speaking different languages.

    I note that one of the plates is marked Leonidas (who also made these). It suggests to me that it's a box of bits and the list of people that it would be useful to is a very short one.

    I saw two pristine gold tri-compax in a Paris shop and fell in love. Coolest things I'd ever seen. Could not get the owner to part with them as he thought the US not a good place to get them serviced. I know how you feel. I now own one and a UNI.

    I would suggest that you create a new thread for this so that this one doesn't get bogged down
