Help please on WWII German fighter clock...
Sun Jan 13 05:20:15 2002


I just got a clock that is supposed to be out of a German WWII fighter. On the name plate it says

Borduhr
Bauart: Gebr: Junghans
Gerat Nr 127-553A
Werk Nr 63482
Anforderz Fl 23885
Herst. Gebr. Junghans
Schramberg

inside it says

J30BZ
31358

on back of the rear case cover, done by hand:

????DW

and on the inside of the rear case cover, done by hand:

57+DW
b(or 3)077

There is no name or other writing on the front face, except for the numerals. There is a rotating bezel. There is a winding knob below the 6 o'clock position. There is a tab of some sort below the winding knob, and there is a sliding tab below the 5 o'clock position (it selects either wind or set time mode). There is also a small dial 0-30, at lower mid center of the face.

I would like to establish that it is a WWII German aircraft clock, and of course would like to know which aircraft it was removed from and any other particulars.

Thank you, Howard Leveque hl@home.com icq 14008771

Howard try having a look at this site;
http://home.t-online.de/home/konrad.knirim/
I've one on my desk in front of me, the description matches mine except it has a 0-15 dial. The rotating bezel on earlier versions is brass, later bakelite. I think the difference between bomber and fighter versions is the former are 8 day movement, the latter 24 hour. I am no expert no these though.
