VACHERON & CONSTANTIN GERMAN ROYAL MARINE DECK CHRONOMETER 925 SILVER 60MM RAREVacheron Constantin
For auction is a very rare solid .925 silver 1944 issued German Military Deck Chronometer officers watch 60mm with caliber 162. The movement is of course exceptional and a work of art on its own as is the absolutely gorgeous silvered deck chronometer dial with blued hands. But the truly noteworthy thing about this watch is the German Marine insignia of the Third Reich. It makes the watch a real piece of history. Many/most of these rare military assigned watches had their logos polished away; it makes sense as it has come to stand for evil. This particular watch however looks much the way it did at the time it was assigned. Much more than a paper weight this is a real item of horological interest: I can say from first hand experience that this watch has an effect when you pull it out and show it to somebody. I feel it goes without saying this watch is something special...but I'll say it anyways.
