FS: Stowa B-Uhr (Beobachtungsuhr) WW2 Luftwaffe Observers Watch *LINK*

Dear All

For sale is this Stowa B-Uhr (Beobachtungsuhr) WW2 Luftwaffe Observers Wristwatch Type A dial c.1940.

The beautiful Stowa B-Uhr for sale is in fabulous original condition with matching movement and case back numbers. The watch features the 1st pattern dial which indicates that it was produced prior to June 1942.

The Stowa B-Uhr watch for sale has been fully stripped, cleaned and serviced by Andy Leftley of Time World Services, who is one of the UK’s leading specialists in German military timepieces.

The hands, dial, crown and glass are all original to the watch and are in superb overall condition. As expected, there are a number of fairly minor scratches and marks to the outer casing of the watch. There are also a number of stress fractures and scratches to the original glass.

The dial is in excellent original condition without any obvious flaws or blemishes.

All the correct markings are present on the outer and inner casing of the watch. Importantly, the case back number matches the movement serial number.

The Unitas 2812 calibre movement is in excellent condition and running extremely well.

The watch comes complete with a free six-month warranty and replica of the oversized leather strap which would have originally been fitted to the watch.

Please see photos below:

The watch is listed for sale on our website priced at £5,950. This price includes free shipping for members of Chronotrader!

All our items are guaranteed to be completely genuine and authentic. We offer a fourteen day "no quibble" money back guarantee on all the items we sell.
