Ahhh, the image that JohnF conjures up. Graduation from Luftwaffe Observers "A" school. You get your uniform, wings (probably bloodied onto your chest by your buddies the nite before), and your B-Uhr watch. Probably in a plain tan colored paper box...on the outside, in German, the equivalent of:
Observers Watch, one each
Contract #FL23883 Revision - B
Serial Nr - 11/50
Over in the corner...way down in the corner, is just "laco" or maybe it says wempe, stowa, lange, or iwc, you're just happy it doesn't say Hamilton on it. You've heard from your buddies that the watch uses a converted pocket watch movement. You don't care...tomorrow your life changes, forever.
Wow, where is my watch? Thanks John.
