    hm not hugely familiar with this one... I have a few military pockets... ... what is the movement ? Valjoux 55 ? 66? Wakmann if you don't know were US distributors for Breitling and there are many Wakmann signed Breitling models as well as their own.... I have looked them up in one of my military books but can't pin point them... probably Bombadier watches.... anyone else..?

    I'd like to know that info too.
    The left one (newer) is:
    Wakmann 17 Jewels w/3 adjustments.
    The right one is (issued):
    Wakmann 18 jewels w/ no adjustment.
    That's all I know from reading on the movements.

    This is an Elgin Bomb Timer I had a few years ago which was a Bombadier tool in WWII - the movement is called a 'Jitterbug' and I gave it as a weird movement gift to the watch maker Peter Speake Marin

    Some details on Ebay about this one from the Korean War perhaps ? Ebay Breitling Pocket EBAY
