Union Soleuere German Pilot’s Watch


This 38.5mm. GERMAN LUFTWAFFE WW2 Pilot’s watch was purchased from a gentleman who purchased it at an estate sale. The Lady at the estate sale said her grandfather took this watch off the wrist of a dead German pilot in WW2. True?? who knows. Either way, this is an all original WW2 Pilot’s watch which has wear on the case and some flaking on the original dial. The airplane looks very cool on the original glossy black dial marked “Union Soleuere”. The Arabic markers have the original lume. The hands were re-lumed many, may decades ago-perhaps during the war. The manual winding SWISS movement was cleaned and is keeping reasonable time. The turning bezel functions. On the wrist, this watch does look great!
