too many variables to be putting a large amount of money into something you have initial doubts on - 1st gut feeling is always the right feeling - if it's cheap walk away - if you have doubts - walk away - unless it was coming from someone who knows all about them and can give rock solid provenance - walk away
Just my tuppence worth
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
From what I have read in the past lange & sohne where unable to keep up with the demand for the watches, so the parts where shipped out to other companies for assembly, which would explain the Hersteller being Wien. As for the back plate check with the seller, it could well be engraved. I would post it on a watch forum though before buying, they would have greater knowledge of these watches.
Agree. Military watch forum is good, or German military watch forum
the watch looks fine to me.
One company made the special case and dial and the other company made the movement. I see nothing unusual or wrong with this watch.
