TUTIMA GLASHUTTE WW2 MILITARY FLEIGERUHR PILOT CHRONO UROFA Cal 59 39MM RADIUMTutima
For auction is a Tutima Glashutte WW2 signed dial Fleigeruhr Luftwaffe German Military assigned Urofa caliber 59 39mm pilots chronograph in exceptional original condition. These watches were made with steel backs on chrome uppers; many that survived really look as if they have been through war. This piece is in an exceptional original condition with the red paint on the reset pusher intact (on this watch a real rarity). The radium dial has had some effect on the dial making it appear almost blueish in certain lights; the patina affect is a good and subtle one. Interestingly given it isn't the watch he is most associated with, Steve McQueen loved this particular watch and wore his all the time. And Mr. Cool himself definitely knew what was good; the timelessness of this design holds up perfectly. A leather jacket, aviators glasses and a pilots watch are just as cool today as they were 80 years ago.
