This is a fabulous replica of the original FL23883 observation watch, made in the early 1940’s for the Hitler’s Luftwaffe.

The face is flat black, with Superluminova C3 marked indications. Has double-arched sapphire crystal. The hands are thermally blued, hour and minute, along with a sweep-second. The case is dark, sandblasted stainless steel, with the engraving FL 23883 on the side. Has a solid stainless steel bottom with laser inscription and engraved serial number. Waterproof up to 5 ATM. Comes with a brown, aviator calfskin, and adjustable strap. The watch measures 55 mm Ø, by 20 mm thick, weighs 7.6 oz. Comes in a facsimile of the original box with papers.
