—————Origin History—————

The full name of "B-Uhr" is Beobachtungs-Uhr, which means "observation watch". It was originally designed for pilots by the Luftwaffe during World War II, and it is still a treasure for collectors and enthusiasts.

The design was inspired by the "Beobachtungsuhr" (observer's watch) used by the German Navy (Kriegsmarine) in the early 1930s. The design of the naval observer watch required good water resistance, while the Luftwaffe (Luftwaffe) needed a watch that was more suitable for pilots. Wearing a mechanical watch.

Pilots fly at high speeds in the sky at high altitudes. Watches must be stable, reliable, shock-resistant and anti-magnetic to ensure that they can operate reliably under extreme conditions.
In order to facilitate the clear reading of time during fast movements, large and clear numbers and scales are designed, as well as hands with conspicuous colors.
In case of night flight, it is equipped with a luminous coating, which can clearly display the time even in a dark environment.
There is also a circle of small numbers on the dial, which is used to calculate information such as flight time and voyage distance.
No frills or complicated features.

At that time, five watch factories participated in the plan after strict selection, namely: A. Lange & Shne (Langer), IWC, Laco, Stowa and Wempe. B-Uhr watches are produced according to the specifications of the Luftwaffe.

The B-Uhr watch not only became one of the iconic equipment of the Luftwaffe, but was also used by the air forces of other Axis countries.

After the war, the watch was discontinued and gradually forgotten. It was not until the early 1990s that some watch collectors rediscovered these classic watches and began to collect and study them that watch manufacturers resumed production.

The B-Uhr watch became a classic of mechanical watches in the 20th century, and its design is still admired and respected by watch lovers today. Many watchmakers still launch B-Uhr style watches to pay tribute to this classic design and manufacturing concept.
