The original official supply watch for the Kriegsmarine, made in the 1940s in Switzerland. A distinctive feature is the designation K. The Festa brand was part of the Union Horlogere cooperative union, along with Alpina, and other manufacturers of military watches.
The Reich ordered watches to a certain set specification. The obligatory requirements for KM watches were: a light dial with luminous marks and hands, easy-to-read Arabic numerals of a simple design, a screw-down steel case back with moisture protection, an anchor mechanism with 15 jewels with a shock-proof device.
All these criteria are well illustrated in this watch. The old phosphor on the hands and numbers has been updated with a new luminous mass, it glows perfectly in the dark.
Steel screw cap, numbered, "FESTA / ROSTFREIR / STAHLBODEN" punched inside. Diameter without head 32 mm.
Width with head 34.5 mm. Height at the ears 38.5 mm. The dial is original, markers and hands with an updated luminosity. Festa caliber 720, hand-wound escapement movement, 15 ruby??
Jewels, Incabloc balance axle anti-shock device. Good power reserve and high accuracy. The technical condition is perfect, professionally serviced and lubricated, runs precisely. Considering the low circulation of KM naval watches compared to DH army watches, and their significantly lower chances of surviving the war, the item can be considered a real rarity in very good condition. The mechanism is serviced, lubricated, tested, the movement is accurate and reliable.
