This vintage, military is made by MIMO (SWISS MADE) and likely saw military action! This particular watch was produced for the GERMAN military in 1940-1942. The 35mm. screw back case on this watch exhibits very good shape for its age. These cases are sleek and slender-they truly look fantastic to wear on the wrist. The letters D & H in the serial number denote German military issue. They also look larger, due to the large dial and narrow bezel. The manual winding MIMO movements are of fine quality and was produced by GIRARD PERREGAUX. This one just cleaned and accurate. The dial on this MIMO is all original, having radium markers and matching hands, large sub-seconds and gold gilt print. I love how this dial has aged over the years. Interestingly, MIMO watch company (Girard Perregaux) ordered their military service watches “smashed after WW2” many witnesses recorded destroying these watches. This was done to not flood the market, thus retaining MIMO’S status as a fine manufacture. If you seek an all original example the has “character”, you found it.
