FS: German DH military WW w/Longines movement + original dial

German military wrist watch from WWII. This is a seldom seen model that was made by Longines in limited numbers – reportedly only 3,000 were issued and were among the earliest DH pieces. As the pictures show, the dial of this watch is original and in quite nice condition. It has never been relumed. The hands are original and it appears that the luminescence may be original. The minute hand is very slightly darker in color than the hour hand. Original subsecond hand fits perfectly in the subregister. The stainless case is in excellent condition with the stepped bezel. I cannot say whether it has ever been polished. The number inside of the case back reads 22209. Plastic crystal is clear. Crown appears to be original. Marker on the screw back reads D2637H. The movement is the Longines 1268Z and it is running quite well. The serial number of the movement is 6415XXX. The underside of one of the lugs is stamped 2637 to match with the DH number. I bought this watch several years ago and have not done anything to it whatsoever given its historical significance. It does not look like this piece had significant wear over the years. Quite a nice example. I have had three of these Longines DH's over the years and this is unquestionably the nicest and most original one. Let me know if you have any questions or would like additional pictures. $2750 OBRO Shipping to the US and to international destinations is $30 by USPS Registered Mail. Full refund less shipping if you are not satisfied.
