    Not officially issued, military style at best. Longines watches used by the German Armee have been signed with DH (Deutsches Heer).

    If everything is original your watch should be fitted with a swiss made 17 j. Longines Caliber 10L,
    Movement signed "Longines Watch Co". Yours seem to have been relumed at some stage and that's why the hands look greenish and yellowish. In perfect condition it would be a collectors item. Yours deserves a careful restoration by an expert.


    Imho the Longines Weems is the most prominent military issued Longines....

    Since you seem to be interested in military watches you should consider to buy some books to educate yourself. KNIRIM comes to my mind as well as Military Timepieces 1880-1990 by Z. M. Wesolowski, ZERO HOUR by William Schorr.

    Check ebay or any other sales platform and military watch fora if there is any out there. Buy the complete watch in perfect condiction et voilá. A 1943 I've seen ist just £2275. Good luck.

    If you do that, you will create a kind of Replica/fake.
    You will lose the authencity of your watch, and I would imagine some of the value too.

    Originality, originality, originality!!
