This is a very interesting find! It is a massive, early 1940’s or late 30’s VEGLIA stainless steel watch measuring a GIGANTIC 40mm. across! Finding watches of this size is EXTREMELY uncommon. We really don’t know anything about the company (VEGLIA). It sounds Italian. The huge,15 jewel movement was just cleaned and is accurate. The dial is original; having a vintage, patina “glow”; blued steel hands and sub-seconds. The case is quite sleek and thin at only 9.5mm. including the crystal! I would guess this may be a military watch. Again, these are all guesses! This is definitely NOT a converted pocket watch. It was meant to be a wrist watch from the start. The lugs are fixed; and we applied a great looking khaki green military, nylon strap. If HUMONGOUS vintage watches ar your “thing”; then, you will love this uncommon watch!
