Back to Alan's Vintage Watches...  Pictured earlier in the site, this is another picture of the no-name Swiss watch, so plain it reminds me of a cafeteria clock. I love the simplicity.
This is the Helbros from page 9 with the radioactive dial. It has very thickly painted numbers, and a crisp black dial. Look at all the copper color on the metal case. All of the chrome is long gone, worn off. The hands have rusted, but the movement is clean and the watch runs. Last repair date, 1945. Click here for a low-angle, low light picture of this resilient watch.
