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.
Hello from France ,
your watch seems to be a Tutima with caliber Urofa 59 inside.
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??
