245. Howard Hughes aviator chronograph personally gifted to photographer J.B. Scott. (ca. 1940s) Vintage original Lemania brand Military Pilot chronograph watch. All original vintage parts down to the leather wristband. This watch was gifted to J. B. Scott who played "Photographer" in Wings in the Dark and was a sometimes paparazzo photographer as well. Apparently, Scott snapped a photo of Hughes out on the town with a lady he wasn't eager to be caught with. He contacted Scott who consented to keep the photo out of the press. A grateful Hughes gave him this watch. Engraved on the back casing, "Scotty from H.H." Includes a telegram from Hughes office to Scott reading, "Howard Hughes would like you to be his guest on a flight in the TWA constellation Saturday February 23 to Las Vegas Nevada". TWA transmittal envelope included. Watch exhibits some wear and age to the face, expected light scratches to crystal and case from wear. Wrist strap remains very good. In overall vintage very good condition. $2,000 - $3,000
