(CS371) A Very Rare grouping of items to a German national who served with the Finnish armed forces between 1941-1944. The grouping consists of his Passport, Personal Diary, Finnish Service Book and Record Sheet. The name of the man is H Zimmermann and there is a photograph of him in Finnish army uniform with the rank of a company sergeant major. This is a very rare grouping to find as it doesn't often happen this way round, with mostly Finns serving in German units. Included in the grouping is his diary which goes up to 1944, where he went on leave to Berlin. His passport has him in scout uniform and his Finnish service record book shows him in civilian clothing. This is a superb grouping, worthy of further research, which would be quite a lengthy and interesting project, which should answer why he was where he was.

The watch has been rebuilt the old original movement with a new stainless steel case and mineral front glass fitted. The watch also benefits from a nice new leather strap and case to hold it. The movement has been cleaned and oiled when it was hand finished by the watch factory, a prestigious firm. The watch is in perfect working order and has a nice large face being approximately 48 mm wide, not including the crown winder. These are nice and chunky making it easy to wind the watch. Once wound, it won't need re-winding for 30 hours or so. As a manual wristwatch, it is accurage within 2 minutes over a 24 hour period which is to be expected. It is robust and strong in construction, but like all mechanical pieces, it should be treated with respect, as I feel the watch is an investment not just a working item.
