Universal Geneve WW2 Royal Dutch Military Issue SOLD

A very important historical military issued wristwatch by the Universal Watch Co.  From what I have read, these were issued to the Dutch military in 1939 just prior to the suspected German invasion and subsequent occupation of world war 2.   These are always the watches I wish could tell us their story, so much history present in every scratch.  I love the original crown, worn down to the brass from years of use.  A true military collectable especially in such good condition.
