One of the treasures from my collection, this SHOM from the 40's. 

A kind of sea snake, as this watch is extremely rare. If you do a search, you will see maybe one or two for sale in these last 8 years. 

This one is the Nr 12, with the correct dial " Fabriqué en Suisse ". 

It lived a hard life, obviously, but it is full of charm, soul and History. 



Is the mechanism self winding Nico?

How much do they charge for this usually?

No pilot watch , by the way. Let's say at the retail of a GMT MASTER... [nt]

It doesn't smell, it hurts!

Just like if you would run against a wall with your head right in front.

Ah, ok, That sounds really unpleasant ...

I am relieved about the lack of odors though.
I learn something new every day from this forum.
