    Re: Military Collections

    8) That is an unbelievable collection, thanks for showing us and helps me with watches to look out for in the future.

    I have a very modest collection but am keen to build it up in the future.

    Cheers

    Seems the black dial Longines 6B is a MOD redial.

    Any opinion??

    Hi Marco. Does that German Bund have springbars or fixed bars?

    No, it has drilled lugs (20 mm). The case is titanium (about 40 mm wide) and a saphire crystal. Movement is a Miyota T250.

    Some more pics :D

    Beautiful watch! I'd like one of those or perhaps Eddie could make something that bit better??? :)
    Enjoy!

    Re: Military Collections

    My collection is very very modest by this place's standards, but may be some of the watches will interest you:

    Soviet "Mayak"





    Dutch "Universal Geneve" already presented elsewhere



    Luftwaffe "Leonidas", alas, in rather sad condition (the right one, that is).



    Wittnauer Weems, probably civilian but with possible RAF connection (story in CW Forum "Other brands")











    Result of a Polish forum project, commemorating a Polish fighter plane of WW2 - the PZL P11c.
    Limitation to 70 numbered pieces.


    Christopher Ward C4 Peregrine BBMF LE

    Revue Sport



    same as Dienstuhr

    Soviet military "Komandirskie" ("By MoD order" - in Russian, of course, on dials) and some "Pobeda" (Victory) watches






    My unfinished (no hands yet, now more advanced) project, inspired by a TV series, where a Polish spy incarnates into a German officer, I thought it appriopriate use for a fake Dienstuhr case, I had.





    GSTP "Leonidas" (some vendors/collectors believe GSTP is for GeSTaPo!)


    "Tissot" is only on the dial, "Pavel Buhre" works inside


    Civilian "Westclox" with a SEIKO mechanism.


    I did not yet check the number of jewels in this Bifora, seven probably...

    Hold on, it will be continued

    Re: Military Collections

    That is a very impressive collection of watches, and these are watches not many people have information about, ie there is not much information as compared to (more often enqountered) U.S. or English watches. You do need to know your stuff when buying these watches.

    More about watches G.S.T.P. Or G.S./T.P here:

    If it's one of yours Roger, i have no doubt it will be lovely. You'll have to put some pictures up of your creations in the George and Dragon; there seems to be a lot of interest in knives.

    I'll have a look. The post count thing has been an issue for me. That is needing so many posts to be able to view or post in different threads.
    Hey ho, getting there.

    To my mind, the Omega TA is the most gorgeous of all military watches, bar none. I'm not naturally an envious chap, but I'll make an exception in this case... Stunning :drunken:
