    Hi Nuno, these are fantasy items. Folks take old period watches and add fake decals to the dials.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Its a real shame people do this they could actually be destroying the true value of the watch which could have been worth a fair deal of money on its own

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    If it wasn't in such beaten condition, I would have suggested having the dial refinished and keeping it for a nice vintage wind watch. The Swiss made 17 Jewel Incabloc movement was an Excellent timekeeper. The case,too,if it had been better, looks to have been a decent watch with a stated waterproof housing. I don't particularly like the-what is apparently a- radioactive Radium dial and hands,though! lol William

    Gentlemen....any Jeweller worth his salt could remove those decals, then it would be a rather smart vintage wrist watch ! I like to think that any discerning soldat would of been wearing this rather nice "Junghans" Boden civilian model of 1938 vintage, which I wear on occasions, it keeps bloody good time as well, better than some of its contempories !
    Prost ! Steve.
