Here's what I've managed to find in October for the collection.

 

I've wanted an original D-Day invasion for a long time so I was happy to make a deal with a fellow forum member. Thanks Christian.

This Bulova A-11 hack watch came at a very nice price. Again something which I've fancied for some time. It's in a great condition too. Is the strap original or repro?

And finally, a very nice white tongue variant of the Type 5 Eagle patch. Possibly bargain of the year at $45.

Nice 1943 Bulova A-11! Bulova versions are very nice and normally a little more sought after. The strap is original. Not sure if it's original to the watch as there were a couple eBay sellers that sold nos ww2 straps up until a few years ago.
