    I have a few questions about RAF watches:

    1. Was it standard for RAF watches to come with bonklip watch bands? Perhaps this was something the airmen added themselves?

    2. Was there variety in the face numbers on RAF watches? Meaning, did some watches come with standard numbers (12, 3, 6, 9) and others come with roman numerials (XII, III, VI, XI)?

    3. Were all Omega watches, issued to RAF aimen, imprinted on the back with 6B/159?

    4. Has the phrase "modele depose" ever been printe don the back of a RAF watch?

    5. Was the back of RAF watches snapped shut or screwed shut?

    I think everyone can guess I am trying to identify a particular Omega watch, dated by the serial number to aprox. 1939. It is: 9788849. I would like to have posted an image of it, but I do not have that ability.

    And could anyone offer advice on how much I should pay for a vintage RAF watch with a bonklip watch band, (if they even used them). Thanks very much.
