About This Watch

With the outbreak of World War 2 the Reichsluftfahrtministerium ( Reichs Air Ministry) recognized the need for an efficient observer watch (Beobachtungsuhr or B-Uhr) to be used by the aircraft navigator, assisting crews of long range bombing missions. Observer Watches were also worn by the Pilots who needed wrist watches that could be accurately and instantly read when both hands were used to pilot the aircraft. This design was given the Reichsluftfahrtministerium classification number FL 23883. This number appeared on all Luftwaffe Watches of this design. Printed on the inside of the case is the type, device and movement number, stock number and the finisher’s name.

The condition of this Wempe B-Uhr is outstanding given its age.  There are no dents/damage to the case. In fact the case retains most of its original lacquer finish which comes off very quickly, once the watch has been worn on a regular basis.  The dial is very good and the luminous paint is totally original. The leather bracelet is original and still in soft, not dried up condition.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! I purchased a valuable sought after watch from them. The whole experience from first contacting them to walking away with the watch was friendly and professional. Great service and approach by every team member I met. The watch itself was brand new and stickered as described. If you've been looking to make a big watch purchase, but were unsure whom to use then I'd absolutely say let SWC be your first choice. Thank you to Dee, Tim & John (and Teddy the Yorkshire Terrier)!
