This maybe should have gone to the Military Forum but just to get it going. A Swiss WW that has some Radium? Burn in the old crystal. It is in a Swiss Sterling Silver case. It does run but I have no idea if it is unusual, rare, or junk.

A nice early wristwatch from the late 20's. Made by Avia Watch Co (Chaux de Fonds, since 1910) intented to the anglo-american customer. The swiss silver export mark (standing bear) was used pre 33. As Peter said monometallic cases of all kind are fine to refinish. Cleaning, relume and a new strap would make a fine watch.
Please tell the diameter of the movement.
