    It's definitely a Wenger, reference 097.0699. I seem to remember there were two competing brands when they first came out. My other one is a Victorinox from after they bought Wenger.

    Love the LLD no date. Such a shame they stopped producing it. But it's a great thing for you if you ever sell it

    Late 50's Genta designed UG Polerouter today on a strap made from a WWI rifle strap. I have to condition the leather quite often.

    We toured the USS Midway a few years ago. Also the Soviet sub B-39 where I snapped this photo of the Midway through the sub's periscope.

    No, they were just in the direct light when I took the shots. The lume activates in the light but dies in under 25 seconds once removed.

    I call it the star field or star dust dial. Many of these old Polerouters have this pattern of patina for some reason.
