    Early Waltham wristwatch. A PW conversion?

    Who made the case? Usually the larger size 6s trench watches are not seen with thin diameter lugs like yours. For the most part they were made with 14mm - 16mm lugs depending on the case manufacturer. However, some 6s trench watch cases made by the AWCCo or Fahys came with 10mm - 12mm lugs...
