- Unfortunately I've forgotten how to make a working link directly to that post,
( so please bear with me, if you like - Thus, I just have to work with a citation)
- This post also covers a number of famous Verso - sides of Reversos
The picture of this Reverso aviation Backside ( credit: 219) is below:
Andrew H description indicates : The Italian aviator Balbo , in 1933 led a fleet
of twenty four Flying boats on a round-trip/ 7-legs flight from Rome to Chicago
and the Verso- side shows those waypoints..
And Yes, the craftmanship for these extraordinary hommage items indeed and as well stunning..
- That way history is captured on the back of a watch..
