WW11 German Army Silvana Wristwatch
A particularly nice and really very wearable example of an early war Silvana Wristwatch produced for the German Army (Deutsches Heer) D H
Utilising a Swiss AS1130 movement these watches were waterproof and sealed with a stainless steel case back, screwed into place with a special spanner. This piece is marked D389912H.
The dial is black with both the hands and hour markers with luminous paint. The maker’s name is at the 12 o’clock position, the subsidiary second dial and hand at 6 o’clock.
The case is plated brass and measures 35mm excluding the crown which amazingly carries and Omega symbol suggesting a replacement. There is some light wear to the case plating.
Strap bars are sprung and will accommodate an 18mm strap, although a reconstituted leather strap is included.
The movement is remarkably clean, working well and keeping excellent time. It will be dispatched and received as such but is not guaranteed.
