Hi Tony,
I looked at the photos and this is a very collectible pocket watch in superb condition.
Longines WW2 GCT 21Jewels Deck Chronometer 1940 Winding Indicator 54mm diameter.
This would sell at auction for £1500-2000 and insurance value is £2500.
Thank you,
Wayne

Hi Wayne,

Thank you for that,I must admit the value is far higher than i imagined when for most of my life i had been told "it was just something your dad used on his boat"

I will be using justanswer again when i have sorted through the rest of his marine equipment

Once again Thank you

Hi Tony,
It's a pretty nice "boat watch". Please ask for me first with future questions.
Cheers,
Wayne
