Vintage Nickel Chrome FOREIGN Made SERVICES Top Winding Open Faced Pocket Watch circa. 1950's
The Services Watches were not military watches but were labelled SERVICES for Sales and marketing puposes to imply Military. Their factory in Leicester only assembled imported watches mostly from Germany which is the reasoning behind using the Foreign mark.
