My father worked for the Quaker Oats company in Chicago. During WWII he was liaison with the Army, helping to develop freeze-dried food for the troops. He was given this Benrus by the Army in appreciation of his work. The emblem on the front says "The Quartermaster Citation". The back has serial #666929. It also came with a printed citation award, signed by Col Rohland A. Isker. I'm guessing it is from 1945. Does anyone know anything about this watch. Is it worth anything? It runs, but unfortunately, not accurately. Watch Clock Watch accessory Material property Strap

This was called the Dial O Rama Jump Hour, ca 1957, a little later than WWII, maybe a post war award. It was made in various dials. List for between $200 and $1000 in good condition depending on what kind of metal the case is.

gotta love heirloom watches. That's family history right there in your hands.
