    Hi nnvet,

    The watch is not a 'Synhart', that does not exist, it's a Hanhart pilots chronograph. This model has 17 jewels and was manufactured from 1938-1942 when the design was changed with a ridged bezel and cheaper metals and electro plating used due to war time restrictions.

    This model was popular with many Luftwaffe aces including the great Erich Hartmann. Today, with it's original strap(should be brown) it is worth a tidy sum.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thank you both for your replies. Big Ned,your right it is a Hanhart,and the band is brown. Jimpy, watch worked about 20 yeras ago,I"m not going to mess with it now,afraid of breaking the main spring,I keep the screw back off the case,so it dont freeze together.
