Description

This is an Illinois Admiral Benson Military/Trench watch. It has an excellent sterling silver 0 size case with attached swivel lugs . The case is in unpolished condition. It has a terrifically aged original dial that looks awesome. This is a difficult to find model.

The hinged lugged Admiral Benson case  is extremely rare.  Only the third Illinois one I have seen.

It has an 0 size, 11j movement that is running fine, but should be serviced.
