German Thiel Wristwatch w/ Metal Band
is on back order
Period correct Thiel wrist watch with an adjustable metal band in good working order. It is a decent watch in used, but still usable, condition. Some scratches in the case and the white face. It seems to be running well and keeping decent time. The speed may need adjusted slightly, but that is a relatively simple task, just use the +/- feature on the back of the movement and let it run for a while to check it. Thiel is a German watch maker and generally produces inexpensive pieces for the average working person, which made them very popular with soldiers during the war. Great personal item.

Note for handling watches:
- Do not shake a watch! If it seems to be sticking, rotate it back and forth a bit as if you were turning a knob off and on; this motion works in the same direction as the movement.
- Never fully wind a watch! Wind the watch only until you feel slightly more resistance. If it stops turning, you've gone too far. You probably didn't damage it this time, but don't do it again. A better habit is to simply wind it a little bit throughout the day.
- Generally speaking, as long as a watch still runs its probably still good. If a watch is a little slow or fast it can probably be adjusted with little effort. A watch maker can do it quickly with a timing tool but it can also be done with trial and error. Very often a small adjustment to the +/- leaver inside the watch will make a big difference to the speed.
