Description:
Waffenamt (WaA) was the German Military Weapons Agency that officially approved any item for military use by the German Armed Forces during WW2. This is a rare and highly collectible military watch from WW2 approved for German Army use c1941. It is the same as those issued to the Czech Air-force and was probably commandeered by the occupying Nazi forces and given a Waffenampt military approved issue stamp on the case-back for German Army (or Heer) use. Many of the military insignia markings were rubbed off after the war due to a ban on Swastikas in public. This one has survived and displays the Eagle carrying a Nazi Swastika and the markings WaA58 on the back indicating that it was officially approved for military use by the Waffenamt sometime between 1941-1942 in Budapest, Hungary. Lovely, big, military, watch constituting an unusual piece of history and highly collectible.
