OMEGA WORLD WAR 2 BRITISH ARMY/MILITARY WATCH CA.1940s

A striking w w w (wrist watch waterproof) OMEGA WORLD WAR II BRITISH ARMY /MILITARY WRIST WATCH CAL 30 T 2, Circa 1940s. 
 

D/ MINT CONDITION refinished black dial with luminous markers (with numerals 3,6,9 and 12) professionally restored/refurbished to impeccable condition.   The extra Large seconds register provides more accurate reading of time, especially seconds, which is vital for any successful military mission. As they say, every second counts on the battle field. Dial is signed with Omega logo, Arrow Mark and SWISS MADE.   Original OMEGA military BROAD hands set in mint condition with luminous. C/  100% Original Full stainless steel screw back case in EXCELLENT condition.  Full Military ordinance number on the outer back case with a military arrow. Inner case back is also fully hallmarked and referenced. Fixed lugs evidencing its age and authenticity.   The reinforced case is a lot thicker than that found on civilian Omega watches from the same era. The six grooves on the waterproof case back, screw down and lock perfectly and tightening down smoothly into the case body.    As with all watches officially issued by the British armed forces, this one is signed on the rear with its type and reference number, together with the evocative military broad arrow emblem. Present on this watch we are offering here is the Full Military ordinance number on the outer back case with a military arrow. Inner case back is also fully hallmarked by Omega and referenced with the exact same case ref number.       One of the most interesting features about military watches is that in most cases, issue records are kept by the Army, Navy and RAF that can identify a particular watch from the details above to a particular serviceman that has been issued with the watch.       Fixed lugs for the military strap to go through, thus providing a stronger hold (than the normal flexible pins fixed on civilian watches) to rough out through the critical condition during war time. This is an important feature of a military issue watch, evidencing its age and authenticity as an army watch issued for the war.   Case measures 35 mm (not including the crown) x 46 mm lug to lug x 12 mm thick.  M/ Original OMEGA signed CAL. 30T2,  15 JEWELS mechanical winding movement in very clean condition. Fully signed and hallmarked.  The original movement holder still intact.

Military timepieces form an interesting part of the horological history, and are extremely in vogue at present. And it is easy to know why: Its oversized, chunky stainless steel case combined with a simple but highly visible black dial is perfectly in keeping with today’s fashionable look.

Indeed, so fashionable is the vintage military watch that many of the current top tier Swiss luxury manufacturers have included a bulky black dialled civilian watch with the military look as part of their recent offerings

Astronomers use sidereal time (pronounced /saɪˈdɪ.riːɔːl/ /ˈtaɪ.m/)
as a way to keep track of the direction in which their telescopes
need to be pointed to view any given

Just as the

An extremely FINE & RARE 47MM LONGINES WITTNAUER SIDEREAL TIME, AVIATOR'S WATCH, Circa 1937.  One of the most collectible vintage Longines models (such as the Lindbergh etc) which some collectors have nicknamed them as the "Daytonas" of Longines  as their values (in the range of SINGAPORE$45,000 to $50,000) approximate that of some vintage Rolex Daytonas. In my humble opinion, this one is "richer" in many ways ... its historical value, rarity & condition ...it is amazing that a watch of 73 years old is still in such good shape... very well loved & taken care of.   HIGHLY COLLECTBLE but like the act of FLYING, this is not something for the faint hearted........ :o(

D/ 100% Original perfect condition porcelain dial signed WITNAUER SIDEREAL LONGINES, SWISS.   Large black full arabic numerals, original blued steel breguet hands set with center sweep seconds hand.  C/ 100% Original large sterling silver case measuring 47mm excluding crown, 55mm including and 55mm lug to lug.   A few interesting features worth mentioning:  Large Onion crown, which I just can't get enough with ~ Fixed lugs evidencing its age ~ Special engraved details at the lugs ~ Double hinged case backs, fully signed and hallmarked.  M/ 100% original condition mechanical winding movement keeps accurate time.  Movement Signed LONGINES WATCH CO. SWISS FIFTEEN 15 JEWELS. CAL. 18.69N.   Rhodium plated, straight-line lever escapement, bimetallic balance, steel Breguet balance spring, index regulator.   dating it to the year 1937. 

Comes with confirmation from Longines Archives & Documentation Department certifying that this watch was invoiced on 29 May 1937 to Messrs. Witnauer & Co., USA.    Longines watches were imported into the U.S. and Canada during the nineteenth century and at least as early as 1884.   Up into the 1890s, all of the Longines watches were brought into the U.S. and Canada through J. Eugene Robert & Co., 30 Maiden Lane, New York City, NY. However, by 1895, their importation was handled by A. Wittnauer Co.,.  On each of the watches thus imported to North America, the name "Wittnauer" is stamped on the dial.

ORIGINAL LONGINES LINDBERGH

EXTREMELY RARE GALLET Stainless steel 2 registers chronograph with military 24 hours indication.  Circa 1920s.

Early in the morning on May 20, 1927 Charles A. Lindbergh took off in The Spirit of St. Louis from Roosevelt Field near New York City. Flying northeast along the coast, he was sighted later in the day flying over Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. From St. Johns, Newfoundland, he headed out over the Atlantic, using only a magnetic compass, his airspeed indicator, and luck to navigate toward Ireland. The flight had captured the imagination of the American public like few events in history.   When he landed, less than 34 hours after his departure from New York, Lindbergh became the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.   What we present here is the ORIGINAL LONGINES Lindbergh (NOT THE RECENT REISSUE) conceived and sketched by Charles A Lindbergh himself as a navigational aid which he submitted to the  director of Longines watch company in New York, who was a friend of his and very interested in both aeronautics and watchmaking and together they produced this LINGBERGH ORIGINAL  - One of the most collectible watches in aviation history!  This RARE LINDBERGH ORIGINAL measures 47mm excluding and 55mm including crown

It is probably one of the mintest example you will ever see, if you can lay your hands on one, that is.........

*WORLD WAR 2 BEOBACHTUNGS-UHREN

If you think that your Panerai or new IWC Big Pilot is big, wait till you see these...The Beobachtungs-Uhren ("B-Uhr", observers watch) with a diameter of 55mm excluding crown, made for the WWII German Luftwaffe (Airforce).

These large watches were used in aircraft navigation & known to be  attached to the arm with long leather straps that fit around the outside of the flying jackets.   Contracted by German Airforce from several fine Swiss & German manufacturers all to the same very high specification.  There were five manufacturers: A. Lange & Söhne, IWC, Laco, Stowa, and Wempe. For collectors, the IWC are the most highly valued (which is very very hard to find), followed by Lange, and then the others.   This year, IWC  offered a rare connoisseur's item for the benefit of a humanitarian organization on its Internet auction with its Big Pilot's watch dating from 1940 with similar look and size of what we present here minus the dial design.  With a minimum bid of US$ 25,000 (closed at US$ 42,900 on 17 December 2005), this treasured horological legend beats all the opening bid records of previous IWC auctions, thus emphasizing the significance of this precious collectors' item. Not only is this the largest watch ever produced by IWC, but it is also one of the manufactory's most sought-after collectors' watches. The value of this rarity has increased continuously due to the brisk demand, yet it is exceedingly difficult to come by one of these masterpieces. IWC made only 1,000 examples of the Big Pilot's watch in 1940, and very few of these have been preserved. It is therefore no surprise that the watch scarcely ever comes up for auction.

The scarcity of IWC version and its price tag signifies the potential of the other makes.  The three we have here are made by Lange & Sohne (in the middle) and Laco. These rare collector's pieces have continued to increase in value and have long since achieved the status of a sought-after object among connoisseurs.  The fully luminous black dial has an inner 12-hour ring read by reference to the short stubby hour hand, while the circumference is graduated for the seconds and numbered at every five-minutes points.  All 3 are housed in a huge Steel/Grey gun metal coated snap back Case referenced FI 23883 with a diameter of 55 mm !!!!  With black original Dial in VERY GOOD Condition, arabic Numerals, blued Steel luminious Hands, Sweep Second.

I was looking for any one of these as a Xmas gift for myself in 2006, and I got 3 of them.   Well, some guys have all the luck !!!!  Love the look of the watch, have worn all 3 three of them separately and Man...don't they look good !!!  Although more than 60 years old, they make many LARGE SIZE current model watches look so pale when you put them side by side....full of vintage charm with great historical value.    Look at the facial expressions of the few pilots on the left, need I say more?  Period.

*A. LANGE & SOHNE, THE FIRST ONE. . .

WELL, THIS IS THE ONE THAT STARTED IT ALL, MY OBSESSION WITH THE B-UHRS, that is.   Acquired in 1990s.

Observation watches were a specialty of Lange & Sohne, who produced these large, high quality wristwatches for the Luftwaffe circa 1939. These watches were worn around the arm of the flying leather suit on long leather straps. Using a pocket watch movement with centre seconds.  The fully luminous black dial has an inner 12-hour ring read by reference to the short stubby hour hand, while the circumference is graduated for the seconds and numbered at every five-minutes points.

This piece was worn by a Navigator during the World War, and imagine how many of these fighter jets survived during the air fights.   This was the victorious piece and it was probably one of the targets of the soldier standing next to it too....... :O) Look at the pictures for the fantastic condition this watch is in.  This Watch is numbered ° 214099 ", housed in a huge Steel snap back Case FI 23883 with a diameter of 55 mm.  Geraet No. 127-560 A-1, black original Dial in VERY GOOD Condition, arabic Numerals, blued Steel luminious Hands, Sweep Second with Hack Feature.

SEIKOSHA WWII KAMIKAZE #1


This is something that not many military watch collectors have seen. My first Seikosha Kamikaze, acquired in 1990s.

Large wristwatch is supplied by the Seikosha watch company to pilots of the Imperial Japanese Navy, ca 1941.  Excellent case with no dings/dents.  Museum quality from our heirloom collections. Mint black luminous dial.  The outer chapter ring was graduated in seconds and numbered upto 60 at five seconds intervals, which could be rotated by the outer bezel, which has a heavily reeded edge for ease of use even with the pilots gloved hands.  The enlarged winding crown also make the setting and winding the watch easier for the busy pilot during the war. See Picture 4 "SKS" stands for Seikosha.

A hard to come by military timepiece for the Imperial Japanese Navy during WWII.  Probably salvaged by the soldier next to it !?!?

OMEGA BRITISH MILITARY RAF 53

An EXTREMELY RARE AND HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE Omega British military 1953 ROYAL AIRFORCE PILOTS watch.  100% Original UNPOLISHED UNABUSED CONDITION. This watch model is affectionately referred to by many as Omega ’53 as this model was made and issued for only one year, you guessed it - 1953 !!!  Regarded by many as the most collectible Omega military watch (many called it THE PILOTS WATCH)  and highly sought after by collectors amongst the other few military watches such as IWC or JLC.  Manufacturing of this watch was commissioned by British military and  deemed as a "no compromise" TOOL WATCH.  The watch was designed to be durable, rugged, accurate, reliable, legible, and able to operate as an instrument under extreme conditions.  Read on to see how this was done. 

D/ Good condition dial with light signs of wear.  The watch is typical military and has a mat black dial, contrasting white markers, luminous hands and hour marks. It is plain and simple, designed for maximum legibility,      The extra Large/broad original hands set provides more accurate reading of time, especially seconds, which is vital for any successful military mission. As they say, every second counts on the battle field.  The hands including the sweep seconds hand are all original.   Dial is signed with Omega logo, T in a circle and FAT Arrow Mark.    Original domed Crystal with light scratches, we have not polished it to leave it as original as possible.  C/ Original Large Size FULL Stainless steel case with water proof screw back case.  Measuring 37 mm excluding crown, 40 mm including crown.  Lug to lug is 48mm and man, it is 13 mm in thickness and feels so great to hold and feel so secured when strapped on your wrist. The reinforced case is a lot thicker than that found on civilian Omega watches from the same era. The six grooves on the waterproof case back, screw down and lock perfectly and tightening down smoothly into the case body.    As with all watches officially issued by the British armed forces, this one is signed on the rear with its type and reference number, together with the evocative military broad arrow emblem with reference numbers that read:  - 6645  101000 - 6B/542 - 2820/53.  Unscrew the case back and you will that Inner case back is also fully hallmarked by Omega and correctly referenced OMEGA WATCH CO, FAB SUISSE SWISS MADE, ACIER STAYBRITE 2777-1 SC.    There is also the original antimagnetic cage or dust cover  to protect the movement.  One of the most interesting features about military watches is that in most cases, issue records are kept by the Army, Navy and RAF that can identify a particular watch from the details above to a particular serviceman that has been issued with the watch.    Fixed lugs allow the military strap to go through, thus providing a stronger hold (than the normal flexible pins fixed on civilian watches) to rough out through the critical condition during war time. This is an important feature of a military issue watch, evidencing its age and authenticity as an army watch issued for the war.  Large original winding crown (for winding up whilst wearing flight gloves) M/ Original Omega signed Mechanical winding movement sets, winds properly and keeps accurate time.   The movement is in very clean condition and is signed "OMEGA SWISS 17  Jewels Cal 283 with reference number.

Can you remember how your heart throbbed when you found the right one and fell in love immediately?  Like the time has stopped for a breathless instant..... Well, I did recently ...... and it is precisely the same feeling I had when I saw this watch..... A 55mm Beobachtungs-Uhren ("B-Uhr", observer's watch),  by WEMPE, Circa 1940s.    The modesty of B-Uhr's outward appearance often camouflaged its inner perfection. These famous high grade B-Uhrs were given stringent Chronometer testing before being issued to the Pilots and navigators of the WWII German Luftwaffe (Airforce).    This one on the left is the rarer version with TYPE A dial (without inner chapter). In near mint condition throughout. Comes with original long leather strap. Presented in its Original WEMPE signed presentation cardboard box!!

WELL, HOW OFTEN DOES ONE GET TO SEE A REAL VINTAGE TIMEPIECE LIKE THIS ONE HERE BY WEMPE, PACKED WITH SO MUCH HISTORICAL VALUE, LIKE NEW IN ITS ORIGINAL CARDBOARD BOX ???

I HAVE HANDLED QUITE A FEW OF THESE B-UHRs  AND TO ME, THIS IS PROBABLY THE MOST VALUABLE OF THEM ALL...MAY BE NOT IN THE REAL DOLLAR & CENTS FORM BUT THE INTRINSIC VALUES BEHIND THE ORIGIN OF THE WATCH AND THE WAY IT CAME INTO MY POSSESSION.  I will spare you with the details of the watch specifications etc which I have provided earlier in the descriptions of the other B-UHRs of the same epoch and will not bore you either with the long trail of events that led to my acquisition of this rare timepiece.  But I guess it is sufficient to say that I was lucky enough to be offered this rare historical item by the descendants of this particular handsome German Pilot (see his photos), for just being kind and approachable when they contacted me for more details of the watch and its history....... Well, guess my late mum was right when she taught me that "NICE THINGS HAPPEN TO KIND PEOPLE".  Priceless !!     A TRUE MUSEUM QUALITY PIECE. And you know what?  I just love the loud ticking sound that emanates from the depth of this timelessly beautiful 55mm case. Wore one to the movie once, and the movie goers beside me must be wondering, what is that ?   A TIME BOMB ? .....Well, to some, almost.   To me, it is therapeutic !!

*IWC MARK XI RAF PILOTS WATCH 

In 1948, a celebrity was launched : the by now legendary Mark XI from IWC. The simple, classic appearance of the watch guaranteed it a special place in the history of pilot's watches from the beginning.  Its cachet has never waned and, to this day, IWC lovers all over the world leave no stone unturned in their search for one of watchmaking's greatest prizes.  You are looking at one issued to the the Royal Air Force pilots, circa 1951.

Based on "Wristwatches History of a Century's Development" 4th edition, there is a caption by the Mark XI that says, "...before delivery, every Mk XI is tested for 648 hours under extreme conditions.   Essentially the tests were the traditional chronometer tests involving different positions and temperatures. They lasted fifteen days. As a watch passed its tests, it was released for service.   As these were military issue watches, no chronometer certificates were issued.

*OMEGA WW2 CAL 30T2 MILITARY WATCH

A w w w (wrist watch waterproof) OMEGA WORLD WAR II BRITISH ARMY /MILITARY WRIST WATCH CAL 30 T 2, Circa 1940s with 100% ORIGINAL DIAL !!!
 

D/ 100% ORIGINAL black dial with radiumed Arabic numerals and LARGE auxiliary seconds register.  YOU USUALLY SEE THE RECONDITIONED ONES IN THE MARKET NOW !!!!! THIS IS AN ORIGINAL DIAL WITH VERY NICE PATINA.   The extra Large seconds register provides more accurate reading of time, especially seconds, which is vital for any successful military mission. As they say, every second counts on the battle field. Dial is signed with Omega logo, Arrow Mark and SWISS MADE.   Original OMEGA military BROAD hands set in GOOD CONDITION with nicely aged luminous. C/  100% Original Full stainless steel screw back case in EXCELLENT condition.  Full Military ordinance number on the outer back case with a military arrow. Inner case back is also fully hallmarked and referenced. Fixed lugs evidencing its age and authenticity.   The reinforced case is a lot thicker than that found on civilian Omega watches from the same era. The six grooves on the waterproof case back, screw down and lock perfectly and tightening down smoothly into the case body.    As with all watches officially issued by the British armed forces, this one is signed on the rear with its type and reference number, together with the evocative military broad arrow emblem. Present on this watch we are offering here is the Full Military ordinance number on the outer back case with a military arrow. Inner case back is also fully hallmarked by Omega and referenced with the exact same case ref number.       One of the most interesting features about military watches is that in most cases, issue records are kept by the Army, Navy and RAF that can identify a particular watch from the details above to a particular serviceman that has been issued with the watch.       Fixed lugs for the military strap to go through, thus providing a stronger hold (than the normal flexible pins fixed on civilian watches) to rough out through the critical condition during war time. This is an important feature of a military issue watch, evidencing its age and authenticity as an army watch issued for the war.   Case measures 35 mm (not including the crown) x 46 mm lug to lug x 12 mm thick.  M/ Original OMEGA signed CAL. 30T2,  15 JEWELS mechanical winding movement. The original movement holder still intact.

Military timepieces form an interesting part of the horological history, and are extremely in vogue at present. And it is easy to know why: Its oversized, chunky stainless steel case combined with a simple but highly visible black dial is perfectly in keeping with today’s fashionable look.

Indeed, so fashionable is the vintage military watch that many of the current top tier Swiss luxury manufacturers have included a bulky black dialled civilian watch with the military look as part of their recent offerings

*ZENITH TIME RECORDER

WHAT IS THAT ???? I EXCLAIMED WHEN MY FRIEND TOOK THIS OUT OF HIS BAG.   TIME BOMB ???? GUESS THE CUSTOMS OFFICER AT THE AIRPORT HAD THE SAME FEELING TOO WHEN HE SAW THIS IN THE LUGGAGE.  THAT EXPLAINED WHY HE SPENT SOME GOOD MINUTES EXAMINING THE ITEM, FLIPPING, LOCKING AND UNLOCKING IT TO SEE IF THERE IS A TIME BOMB HIDDEN SOMEWHERE (QUITE RISKY ACTUALLY AS HE COULD HAVE ACTIVATED THE BOMB IF IT WAS ONE) .......ANYWAY, TO HIS DISAPPOINTMENT, HE COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH THIS ITEM EXCEPT THAT IT IS A DARN UNUSUAL ZENITH TIME RECORDER......... AND IT RUNS FOR 8 DAYS !!!!!

I am not sure of the history of this timepiece.  From its grey coating and the black dial with luminous details, one some what tend to relate it to military operation...but for ???? well, it is for ZENITH to know and us to find out. If you know, please be generous to share the information... email us for everyone's benefit. There is a key (well 2 actually) signed ZENITH to lock the item from itchy hands. Unlock it and you see a paper disc signed ZENITH etc that is full of marks, probably marked by the protruding piece at the side to mark the time lapsed. On the back of the clock, you see two holes which means you can mount on the wall and use it as a normal BUT unusual 8 DAYS clock !!!!!!!!!!!

WELL, IT SURE LOOKS GOOD WITH MY COLLECTION OF The 55MM Beobachtungs-Uhren ("B-Uhr", observers watch) made for the WWII German Luftwaffe (Airforce).  What do you think ???  Ok, stop ticking !!!!!!!!!  phew !!!!!!!!!!!!
