German Army 'DH' Service Watch By Longines

The Holy Grail of 'DH' watches


The German Army 'DH' Service Watch By Longines, has always been considered the 'Holy Grail' for military watch collectors. And with good reason. The superbly made Longines 'DH' watch, is leagues ahead of all the other German Army contract watches, with Zenith coming in as a close second.

The Longines 'DH' watch with case reference ' 22209', has also two other accolades. Firstly, collectors like to partner the German Army Longines with its Longines-made British Army equivalent - one of the famous 'Dirty Dozen'. Secondly, Longines have re-created the German Army watch, which is now a part of their famous Heritage range.
