Converse Cons dial watch

Today is the second of my Converse watches, but this time with a more traditional style.

I don't know the name of the watch, but the model number on the back is B05239-60. There is also a sticker which gives a number WC0011QW which could be a catalogue number or a number from the QA process. On the face, case, and strap there is the name Cons. The Cons line is a particular line of shoes made by the American Converse shoe company, and this watch must have been part of that line. The Cons name on the strap is the most noticeable being in large letters and coloured like the American flag.

The watch is a 3 hand dial design in a large tough rubber case. There are hour marker blocks, and around the dial in very tiny numbers are minutes and minute markers. Between the minute markers are little lines for 1/5th seconds, but as the second hand only has one beat per second, they are only for decoration.

It looks like it is designed for rough outdoor use, and it is 10 bar water resistant.
