This is a description of a rare "RLM-Nav" German Air Force 38mm waterproof chronograph manufactured by Leonidas in the 1940s. It boasts excellent visibility with a black dial coated with luminous paint, a sturdy 38mm screw-back waterproof case, and the incorporation of the renowned Cal.22 movement from Valjoux. Emphasizing practicality and military aesthetics, it showcases a well-crafted design and a charming patina that highlights its military heritage. The "RLM-Nav" was also manufactured by Minerva, Universal, Lemania, and others at the time. Leonidas' unique step design and screw-back case differ from the conventional middle case construction method, featuring a unique arrangement where the middle case is screwed into the case back instead of the case back being screwed onto the middle case (the threading of the case back is on the inside rather than the outside).
