About this watch


Gala German military c1930’s fantastic condition 30mm stainless steel case and dial with sub seconds.

The movement is also signed Gala

All the above is enough to make this piece stand out but turn it over and see the case back and discover the hand engraved German eagle and swastika and this becomes all together more collectable.

At the end of the second world war it was common for soldiers to try to remove military markings that could identify where the soldier had been stationed for obvious reasons so it is not unusual to find the dh numbers removed from a piece like this but the quality of the engraving that is left on the case back is stunning
