Lot No. 28 (99th Auction)
A. Lange & Söhne, Glashütte i/Sa. - Deutsche Uhrenfabrikation, Movement No. 92670, 58 mm, circa 1935

An aviator's rare wristwatch of the Deutsche Luftwaffe with "stop centre seconds" device, formerly with graduation dial - delivered to the "Reichsminister der Luftfahrt" in Berlin for 323 Reichsmark on May 13th, 1936 - with a copy of the Lange & Soehne records confirming the originality of the watch and with rests of the original oversized aviator's leather strap
Case: nickel, push back with hinge. Dial: matt black.

This aviation deck watch is one of a small series of 30 timepieces delivered to the newly established German Luftwaffe in 1936. The original series was fitted with regular pocket watch calibres no. 41. During the war, many of the watches were remodeled by replacing the degree scale with a regular dial - most likely to improve the readability, but fortunately this timepiece still possesses its original dial. The hack mechanism above the hand setting button at 4 o’clock also still retains its original function.
