Here is a US issued wristlet from WW1 issued to the signal Corps. I know when US Army aviation started out they were attached to the US Army Signal Corps so I got a theory these watches and about 6 or more brands that had Signal Corps on the dial were issued to Pilots. I got this last year had to get it service and have the crystal replaced and getting a beveled glass crystal is hard for these old watches it had a cheap plastic cracked one when I got it.

The movement shot and case cover. This one in real great shape for being over a 100 years old compared to others I seen.

What an interesting watch and the state of preservation of the dial and the hands is immaculate.  Thanks for sharing.
