Super Rare WW2 German Kriegsmarine Issued Storz Wristwatch c. One of the hardest to find KM watches, the scarce Storz WW2 Kriegsmarine German Navy service watch. Relatively few examples of these survive. So a Rare Opportunity for the Serious Collector. Bizarrely during the Service, the Watchmaker took the Dial off to be greeted by the exact manufacture date of the Dial!The 18th of December 1942. Photo taken by our Watchmaker During the Watches Service. They made Dials during 1927 - 1981 and throughout the War supplied the German Military with bespoke Dials. Good Quality German Made PUW 500 Manual Wind Movement with 60 Second Sub Dial Register. Protected by its Original Movement Cover.
FULLY Professionally Serviced by us at GungaDin Watches. The Movement is wonderful and Clean whilst ticking away strongly and keeping Good Time, within a Spread of around 2 minutes +- per Day Average over 6 Positions Which isn't bad at all for a 80 odd year old Movement that stood the test of War and is now Basically TIRED , having been FULLY PROFESSIONALLY serviced by our fantastic in-house Watchmaker. Awesome Untouched Original Radium Dial with Black Arabic Numerals and Black Storz Lettering. The Dial is in Awesome Vintage Condition, with nothing really to Report at all!
The Original Radium Dots have aged nicely and the Dial sort of Golden Colour giving the Dial that Warm Patina feel. This is the original Untouched 79 year old Dial that was manufactured by Weber & Baral Factory back on the 18th of December 1942 and was then issued to a recruit of the German Navy.
THIS IS NOT A REDIAL!!! The Military Spec Radium Dial that you can see has aged into a Cool Golden Colour. Mil Spec Chrome Topped was! Case Top is in fair condition for its age, with the Chrome non existent, very common with these Watches, but Structurally in Good nick. It has benefitted from a light Clean as part of the Service.The Case was missing one fixed Lug Bar and the other looked extremely Frail, so we took the decision to replace said Lug Bars, as the last thing you want is the Watch snapping off your Wrist. Kriegsmarine Issue Marks still nice and Crisp to the Back. Diameter with Crown: 37.2mm. End of lug to lug: 41.2mm. Lug Spacing: 18mm Solid Bars. Original Handset, in very nice Vintage order. They have been relumed as part of Service. Replacement Vintage Crown in good nick but a little Worn.
Crystal prior to Service was Cracked and Unserviceable so our Watchmaker fitted a New Thick one during Service. On a NOS 1950s Period 18mm Leather Strap with Gold Plated Buckle, Which looks amazing. I chose this one as I believe it to be very close to what this Watch was Originally Issued on. A very Seldom Seen German Military Specification Watch. Wonderful Radium Dial, that's just aged beautifully.Represents a truly Top Investment for the Future. Fully Serviced and ready to wear. We can now offer Servicing at a Fraction of High Street Cost, if this is something that Interests you please drop me a message.
