Original German WWII Swiss Pocket Watch by Hertha with SS Marked Back - Fully Functional
Original Item: One of a Kind. This is a a very nice quality Swiss Pocket Watch by Hertha, just like everyone's grandfather had, and it still works! We have been getting a few pocket watches out of Germany from a German Collector, since the display of German WW2 symbols is regulated. Here in the land of the free, we offer these only as Historical Artifacts to Museums, historians and collectors for historical purposes.
This nice example has engraved on the rear the very distinctive SS "Sig" symbol symbol inside an engraved shield on a pebbled field. These pocket watches were available for sale on all German WWII Bases and stores. The shield was most likely part of the original manufacture, and could be personalized in any number of ways.
The inner brass movement cover is marked faintly with the HERTHA trademark logo, and the movement cover is marked in French:
This indicates the type of movement "cylinder" and that it is an 8 (Huit) Jewel Movement. There is another HERTHA trademark logo marking on the inside of the back cover/support along with other markings, and serial number 472741 is present on both covers. There is definitely age related wear to the plating, but it gives it a great service worn look.
Still in great condition and still in working order offered only as a Historical Artifact. Ready to display!
