It is rare to find such a well preserved WW2 aviators watch such as this…especially having an all original dial! This circa 1939, 36.5x44mm. HELBROS AVIATORS watch is truly a feast for the eyes! The case is chrome plated, pristine with double hinged back, one signed HELBROS and the other with the serial number. The signed, HELBROS manual winding movement was just cleaned, overhauled and maintaining accurate time. You can’t help but notice the original, extended onion winding crown; designed to be operated while the pilot is weaing gloves. The radium dial is completely original and as you can see, in very fine condition, as are the blued steel, radium “fancy” hands. The bezel rotates to set the triangular (inner) marker to mark timing positions. Also, the bezel is “double” top section “beaded”, lower is coin edge.
