    Default Nav B-Uhr just found

    I'm new here and just got this watch. I'm trying to put a link to a couple of pictures I took. I would like to know who made it. I know it is a 55 mm
    Big pilot watch made for the Luftwaffe. It is marked on the side of the case fL23883 and on the back of the case RLM Nav B-Uhr and under that 1401.
    It looks like it may have had a greenish finish that is mostly worn off.

    any help or info is appreciated.
    If the link doesn't work, then cut and paste into address bar.
    thanks

    Hello from France ,

    your watch seems to be a Tutima with caliber Urofa 59 inside.

    Smile b-uhr

    thanks

    Others have said Wempe, an early B-uhr without hacking ability??
    Whatever, it's pretty cool I thought. I'm not a watch person, but an antique hunter/picker so I buy what's interesting and a great deal whather I know what it is or not. Kinda like a lottery with a little control.

    It's not a Stowa, and the case maker as has already been said is Wempe.

    thanks foilguy, you gave me a ton of info in another thread. I see some other person recently got a IWC B-Uhr, you guys think. I was reading his thread (Andy) - interesting coincidence since I'm Andy too (Andrea)---about identifying and selling, but he hadn't opened the back. Would this website be a good place to sell mine, or ebay, do you think??

    I need to have the crown reattached to the stem, then my watch repair friend thinks it wil work fine.
