Just a curiosity that may be of interest. A JW Benson silver half-hunter in what I believe to be the transit box from when I was returned for service. London case hallmarks for 1937. Watch is untouched since whenever it had that service. A little corrosion on the movement (from damp I suspect) and clear signs that it was quite a well used watch. It is definitely not NOS. I believe the movement is a Tavannes-Cyma 939.

I intend to keep the watch like this as it has been for many decades. I have others I can use so no need for this one to be in perfect order. It does work with a minimal wind.
