I thought the watch was on display at NAWCC.
I am there next week, will check it out.
If its not that one it is another President with 2 children on dial.

Mark, that's JFK's children on that watch, Caroline on the left, and John John on the right, as he was called as a child.

I have an article if I can find it on the etching process of photos onto case and or dials at Hamilton. Maybe I'll try to post a little of the story.

Great. That pic on the left almost looks like Jackie, I couldn't tell and didn't read about it.

One of the employees who worked on the photo-etched dial project kept a duplicate of the Kennedy dial for himself. A year or so ago I restored it for the now-deceased employee's son. Great piece but obviously not Kennedy's personal watch.
