SOLD - Vintage 1950's Rare A-17 Waltham Wristwatch | Military Service Watch With Hacking Seconds - Rare Specs
The A-17 is a staple 32mm military issue watch post-WWII. This particular piece is a very rare specification version. Notice the different shape of the large original crown. The large size of the crown on A-17s are well documented; however, this issue is much rarer due to its crown. I can tell you that it does feel like a great easy wind with this crown. An improvement over the traditional round. The watch is in the best condition one can ask for. All original sharp finishes, minor wear for this watch, sharp back engravings, original spring lugs, and strap. The dial is original and flawless. The watch was overhauled recently upon inspection when we in-took the watch and is running at about +10 sec per day, which is awesome for these watches. This is a very special watch that does not come to market often.
