1950s Helbros 24 hour military watch

Post by MalzMan » Sat Jan 15, 2022 3:34 am

Hey guys I’m quite new to the watch world so forgive me I came across this watch and I’m trying to get some more info on it. I was hoping you guys can help the little info I do know about it is that it is Swiss caliber 200 17 jewel movement and the dimensions are 33 mm without crown lug width 16mm. Any info and insight you guys could provide would be appreciated. Another question I have is is it worth to getting it serviced keeps time for a few hours but has low power reserve. Thanks Alex images attached below

Hi, this isn't a military watch per se, but a "military-like" watch.

I would say spend your service money on a watch that has a higher value than this one as you'd be underwater if you ever decided to sell it.
