My Dad passed this watch down to me. My research tells me this is a 1931 Gladiator but I am not 100% sure. I have included before and after restoration photos. I had it serviced, the crystal replaced and the face restored. The two tone design is a beautiful example of an art deco time piece. I have also included a photo of my Grandfather wearing it at an airport dated 1949. It’s profile on his wrist is unmistakable.
The original watch came with a leather band. It now has a bracelet from the time period. My watchmaker had an inventory of old parts and bracelets.
I enjoy wearing my watch and it always gets the “wow” comments.
