Military JLC Weems bezels

Postby Hallibag » Mon Feb 13, 2017 6:41 pm

Hi,

I've heard it said that Royal Air Force JLC Mk.VIIA Weems watches had chrome-plated brass rotating bezels, and that the equivalent LeCoultre Weems watches in USAAF service had stainless steel rotating bezels. Just wondering, is this information correct?

Thanks!

As far as I know they're all plated.

Both are plated brass.

Thanks, Ilja. So, then, no stainless steel bezels?
