In her panic to order me a pocket watch for my wedding present, the better half bought me two Air Ministry watches. The first one here is a pocket watch produced by Pringle in 1941 as denoted by the stores reference code stamped on the clock reverse. The AM and crown motif is also present. The 6E reference indicates that this watch was supplied to ground engineers.
The watch is missing its glass and doesn’t work at the moment but this is something that will be rectified. A lovely little watch which made me smile.
