Elgin grade 494 BU Aero US Navy marked 23j WI "Click" to Login or Register 
Ok, I recently picked up a grade 494 23j 16s and it is marked BU Aero US Navy but does not have the WI indicator. I have seen this grade with the military markings with and without the WI indicator but all of the non-military versions should sport the WI hand and dial.

Does anyone have the military or non-military marked 23j grade 494 and has anyone worked on them that might give a clue to what would be needed if they are missing the WI portion?

Are you saying the watch has an indicator dial but the indicator parts are missing from the movement?
