877: Gents Habmann Manual Wind, Tank-Shape, Krupp-Steel, ca. 1940

Accessories: none
Case: Krupp V2A Stahl - steel, fixed lugs, plastic crystal, push back, 22x35mm
Band: leather
Dial: Habmann - silvered, negative print with black enamel lacquer, sub second
Movement: 1, 13 - PUW - calibre PUW 8.75x12''' (predecessor of the PUW 500), 15 jewels, monometalic screw balance
Condition: C1-2, B0, D1-2, M1-2

Many recognize the PUW 500 at the first glance, and many registers ignore the early variants, likely because just minor differences are visible on the back side, which even have no relation to particular generations. But on the dial side actually something happened between the 4 generations, and the first two were even  not yet called PUW 500, as the dial of this watch indicates: On its back side "8 ł/4 / 12, PUW" is embossed.

Steel cases are more valuable than chromed or gilt cases. And for very old watches they were scarcely used, and therefore electrify collectors.
On ebay almost every chromed watch is offered as steel watch, and even gilt cases are designated as gold or at least as gilt steel cases. In my descriptons steel is a guaranteed feature - and important: There is a return privilege.
As many don't realise this delicate difference, ebay appears as more economical source at the first glance.
