    Default Rare Chrono up for Auction

    Spotted this last night, up for auction in the midlands



    Not actually issued, but with matching serials. Pity it is missing the red pusher.

    A rare and interesting thing.

    No connection with me, just for interest's sake

    Well spotted Dave. I had a look in Ulric and the movement number suggests it was made in 1942 rather than 1940 (as the auction catalogue says - funny how every Luftwaffe watch is a Battle of Britain relic!).

    It is from what is known as "Middle quality production", in that the fine regulation of the earlier waches was replaced with lower quality regulation. It should still have silvered plates and bridges plus brass wheels. The case was originally nickel-silver over brass. The grooved space in the pointer would have been painted red. The bottom pusher was probably not red - perhaps the auctioneer should do a little homework?!

    The pushers are available from a restorer in Germany. There were a couple of sets of NOS hands for these on ebay Germany a while back but I didn't look closely enough to see if they were genuine. Maybe you need a restoration project?

    Regards

    Jon'.
