The original bracelet is a major plus for this item because of its own value. This men's watch was introduced in 1938, designed to serve in the harshest of conditions, and this model was used by the German military branches during the war.91306, DRGM, Edelstahl, Antimagnetisch, Stossicher - Siegerin 1 - steel, plastic crystal, push back, 27.5x35mm. Original, steel, integrated covered mesh bracelet, continuously adjustable buckle. 232990 - calibre Alpina 586, 15 jewels, monometallic screw balance, Incabloc. We do not know enough of the history of this watch to know where and when it was worn and whether it saw active duty. But it is in keeping with the Alpina TreSor watches that did so. "TreSor" by the way means'safe', as in as secure and solid as a safe.
Alpina designated only their most rugged watches "TreSor". It is a sharp watch and if only it could talk. I would love to know who wore it and when and where. The steel case with a plastic crystal (possibly original), in very good condition.
The case measures approximately 25.5 mm x 35mm. There is a sub seconds register at the 6 position. The watch has a nicely knurled crown.The steel case shows some signs of use down the decades, but all in all is in outstanding vintage condition. A WWII Watch is a survivor of the most intense global conflict of all time. Like the troops who fought it, the WWII watch has gone through the war, survived battles, endured fights. A WWII watch exudes a character of endurance and history of determination on every feature of its case, dial and movement. A WWII watch with patina and scratches speaks of long marches, or late watches, or beach landings, or well timed take offs and landings.
Like those who fought and endured, a WWII watch will not easily yield-up its secrets, but to those who are patient, stories will come to the fore. Do not settle for a restored or redialed WWII watch.
