Helvetia, a Swiss brand that gained its popularity in the 1930s and 1940s by manufacturing shock-resistant sports and military watches. The brand made watches specifically for the Germans and their allies in the years before World War II.

This watch is a perfectly preserved gem, considering the life it could have had. The dial and hands use Radium material, which was later replaced by Tritium due to its dangers when handled by the dial manufacturers, as this material relied on radioactivity for its glow in the dark. The size is incredibly rare at 40.5mm, as these military watches usually had a size between 30 and 34mm.
