FS: WW2 USA soldier's Wittnauer Weems from trusted seller

Talk about early tool watches! This WW2 gem was recently fully serviced including a new mainspring. A very special WW2 American military wristwatch, with a very special inscription on back. A few military watch site members have already traced the information in the inscription to articles and a photo you can find online about the soldier himself! These pieces so rarely come along. I bought this watch directly from his son and restored it, putting it back into service and on an original dark grey WW2 era canvas strap. This Weems is the small 28mm version from back in the day when most U.S. military watches were around that size. All the work finishing it has been done for you; it's ready to wear and to take a special place in your collection.
