MWC Aeschbach Luftwaffe / Reichsluftfahrtministerium (RLM) Automatic Pilots Watch

Sold Out

ABACH/DUHR1

This automatic self-winding classic WW2 pattern Aeschbach* military watch with a small subsidiary dial second hand is based on the typical designs used by the German Luftwaffe and issued by the Reichsluftfahrtministerium (RLM / German Air Ministry).

These watches did not remain in the possession of the Luftwaffe pilots and were issued to them on a mission by mission basis, to be returned to the quartermaster on arrival back at base.

This watch is closely based on one of Aeschbach's WW2 designs. Although the original watches are now quite rare and tend to fetch high prices this watch is outwardly almost indistinguishable from the factories WW2 models. It retains the acrylic crystal used on the original watches. The original 15 Jewel hand-winding mechanical movement is upgraded to a 21 Jewel self-winding automatic which can also be manually wound if required.

The watch offers the benefit of retaining the original outward appearance whilst having a few discreet updates to improve its suitability for use on a day-to-day basis.

This watch has a heavy stainless steel satin finish case made from Military Grade 316L stainless steel and a subsidiary dial second hand. The black dial has luminous markings.
