Have any of you seen that movie Das Boot about a German U-Boat the part of the movie were they go deeper to escape being blown up by death charges bolt's are popping because of the depth then that U-Boat clock crystal shatters. Not a lot of these survived the war the Allies were good at sinking them since we broke there codes need to see that movie about the code braker's one of these days. Well I just picked this up being ex Navy I collect nautical clocks now and then I have a lot of US Navy clocks they were easy to find and cheap in price compared to this one supply and demand since there few of them I paid some for this baby. This was made for the German Navy then called the Kriegsmarine could of come off a surface ship or a U-Boat it was made around 1939 by a company called Kieninger & Obergfell they made anniversary clocks before the war. The movement a eight day wind. The N under the number stands for the North sea fleet and the M under the bird some I know don't like is for Navy or Kriegsmarine this one is what I call museum quality. Now I need a WW2 British Navy ships clock next.
Most you don't see the black paint still on from what I read from the net the ones with black paint most likely came off a U-Boat.
