Aeschbach WW2 Pattern Luftwaffe / Reichsluftfahrtministerium (RLM) Pilots Watch


SKU Code: ABACH/DUHR1This automatic self-winding classic WW2 pattern Aeschbach military watch with a small subsidiary dial second hand is based on the typical designs used by the German Luftwaffe and issued by the Reichsluftfahrtministerium (RLM / German Air Ministry)  these watches did not remain in the possession of the Luftwaffe pilots and were issued to them on a mission by mission basis, to be returned to the quartermaster on arrival back at base. This watch is closely based on one of Aeschbach’s WW2 designs, although the original watches are now quite rare and tend to fetch high prices this watch is outwardly almost indistinguishable from the factories WW2 models and retains the acrylic crystal used on the original watches, also the original 15 Jewel hand-winding mechanical movement is upgraded to a 21 Jewel self-winding automatic which can also be manually wound if required. The watch offers the benefit of retaining the original outward appearance whilst having the advantage of a few discreet updates to improve its suitability for use on a day-to-day basis. The original WW2 watches made for the Wehrmacht, Kriegsmarine and Luftwaffe were produced by a large number of Swiss and German manufacturers some of which including Aeschbach originally founded in 1923 continue to exist to this day. Most of the watches were fairly similar and whilst the British have the Dirty Dozen collecting the German equivalents can be quite challenging due to the sheer number of suppliers at the time which comprises over 100 different manufacturers!This particular watch has a heavy stainless steel satin finish case made from Military Grade 316L stainless steel, subsidiary dial second hand, hacking function, black dial and luminous markings. Specification:Case Diameter: 36.5 mm exc crown, 39 mm incl crownLug to Lug 43 mmThickness 13.5 mmLug Type: Spring strap barsDial Colour: Black Case Material: 316L stainless steelCaseback: 316L stainless steelCrown: 316L stainless steelWater Resistance: 5 ATM (50 m)Movement: 21 Jewel Automatic Glass: Plexiglass / PerspexLuminous Material: LuminovaSerial number on casebackStrap: Black LeatherSupplied in a box24 Months Guarantee
