A wartime period british Rotary wristwatch, fairly small size, plated brass casing, with stainless backing plate, has black face with arabic numerals and inset seconds dial to the bottom, top of face is marked Rotary with the winged wheel logo. Backing plate has AM & broad arrow, with 6B 1234 and 1156/3.44, these markings portray the watch as RAF issue but I am not sure they are correct, so am selling as a working period watch.

A pair of RAF issue, pre-focus 7x50 binoculars, used by Airsea Rescue boat crews, they have a one piece rubber eye shield cushion, overall finish is black, with casing marked with type 6E/383. Mk1V. Bino Prism and a broad arrow. Condition is only fair with some corroded area's to casing and optics being dirty but they display well and are complete with webbing neck strap.

M9137 - RAF MK11C COCKPIT CLOCK.   £175
A very good condition RAF Mk11C, 1944 dated cockpit clock with metal casing, as used in fighters etc. It has a 8 day movement, black face with white arabic numerals, glass has central knobb fitted to control a set of red dummy hands, a feature on these clocks for marking start times etc, The normal hands are controlled by a knobb to the bottom right of the clock, this is also the winder. Sadly the glass is cracked but this could be replaced, though it still displays well as it is.

M8888 - RAF COCKPIT CLOCK.   £175
A RAF Mk2B cockpit clock, as used in most aircraft of the period, this being the type without the dummy hands, black face dated 1943, with white arabic numerals and full sweep seconds hand, has a black bakerlite casing embossed to the rear with AM & kings crown and has a winder knob to the lower right corner which is also used to set the time, in good working order.

M7780 - RAF 6X30 BINOCULARS.   £75
A pair of the standard issue 6x30 RAF binoculars, with black finish and fully marked with AM & kings crown, excellent optics and has leather neck strap, though this does have a break in it, otherwise condition is fine.

M8657 - RAF MK11D COCKPIT CLOCK.   £195
A good RAF issue Mk11D, cockpit clock with type number 6A/1150 to the black face, date of 1943 and white arabic numberals, 8 day movement by Smiths in a bakelite casing with glass cover, which has a inset knob that controls dummy red hands (often missing), has winder knob to the side at 4 o clock, good working order.

A prewar german wristwatch which has been used and inscribed on the back "Feldwebel. W.BECKER. HG.1st.Flak. R." which looks to be a Feldwebel Becker of the Hermann Goering. 1st Flak Regt (a luftwaffe flak unit). If this is correct, they saw action in north africa/tunisia and italy. Sadly the watch. The watch has no visible maker name, a plated case, watch face is off white with inset seconds dial and arabic numerals, fitted with a grey lkeather strap which could be period, many troops bought and used civilian watches, not everyone was issued a watch, sadly its not working but its an interesting item with possible research potential.

A german WW11 clock by Keinzle, standard type fitted in all military trucks such as the Opel Blitz etc, very good movement in full working order, with separate glass & bezel that hold the clock into the dashboard, has good black face with roman numerals in both normal & 24hr markings, where on most clocks there would be an inset seconds dial to the bottlom, there is an attractive rad & white rotor behind a grill, which as the clock operates you see first red then white as it rotates, has rear winder & adjustment knob, a nice timepiece.

A very nice kriegsmarine issue wristwatch, plated brass case and having silver/white face with lumed arabic hour numbers and inset seconds dial, to the face top is KM, under which is Zentra, german watch company logo of Albert Kratz. GmBh Minden and is a shockproof watch, very slightly small in size to other watches, screw on rear, stainless steel cover has serial number 509811. Watch has a modern leather strap and is in working order.

A good but slightly scruffy, early pair of lightwieght 7x50 binoculars, with overall black finish to its alloy casings, marked to the top plates on one side the maker, F.Lietz.Wetzlar. And on the other Dienstglas,( meaning military issue) 7x50, serial number and M, which may indicate naval use. Optics are pretty clear but could do with a clean.

M9172 - GERMAN 6X30 BINOCULARS AND CASE.   £0.0000
A nice pair of Dienstglas 6x30 binoculars, with rain guard, button flap & neck strap and complete with bakerlite case & shoulder strap. Binoculars are light weight alloy with blackened finish, marked Deinstglas 6x30 and H/6400, marking them as army issue, they are maker coded ddx for Voigtlander & Sohne A.G. and also marked KF which denotes they have been prepared for use upto minus 20 degrees C and they have an extra O mark, as being treated for use in minus 40 degree climates. Opitcs are very good and are still fitted with range graticle to the right optic, this is a very original and complete set from around 1942.

Very good condition german 6x monocular, maker marked to Spindler & Hoyer. Gottingen. One of the more unusual, old german opical makers. All black finish in as new condition, very handy pocket size item.

A 1940's british wristwatch by maker Winegartens of London (more known for gold watches), has off-white face with arabic numerals and full sweep seconds hand, maker named to the top, watch has plated casing and rear case is stamped with broad arrow with WD palced either side, over which is P and under is 45, the marks have been hand stamped and are possibly military, watch is in good working order, with fairly old leather strap.

A working, 1930's/40's period wristwatch with distinctive dull gold & grey colour face, with white arabic numerals and inset seconds dial to the bottom, has no maker name or mark, has silver plated case and metal link strap. Rear of the case is inscribed to Flt.P.Clostermann. No3 Sqd and has a March 1945 date.

A small pair of 2.5x38, bakerlite and brass construction binoculars made during the war and issued for combined operations, possibly commando's etc, maked with the MOD broad arrow but no other markings and are complete with webbing neck strap, condition is pretty good and lenses are clear but could do with a clean.

A good, swiss made, british issue, wartime ATP wristwatch, has a silver/white face with inset lower seconds dial, arabic numerals and lume dots to each hour, the hands are the more unusual "alpha" style and may indicate the watch being by swiss maker Reconvilier. Works and runs but has not been cleaned or serviced and is minus a strap.

A very good pair of 6x30, black finished binoculars, with wartime Air Ministry markings, they also have very good optics.
