UNIVERSAL GENEVE Aero-compax | ...war watch (1941-1945)

By the amiability of the historian Daniel Focsa, author of an excellent document-book "White Fleet – a subjective history" I have received a few pictures in which the wristwatches of famous women-pilot of the also famous sanitary fleet (Fleet 108) from Romanian Royal Aviation that activated in WW2 can be seen.

Also by its amiability I have received the description of a short telephone discussion with Mariana Dragescu (today at 96 years): "... for two times, the aircrafts form the White Fleet (so, Nadia Russo also) received as gift (or with a symbolic price, I do not remember it exactly) Universal Geneve watches. First time, it was at the beginning of war or before and the second time, after a few years. I still have the second watch at my wrist... The watches were received from the aviation leadership, probably from the State Sub-Secretary of the Air. Generally, all pilots received Universal Geneve! It is a very resistant watch; it was hit and several times slammed without anything happen to it."
