is a true twentieth century design icon. Designed by Dieter Rams and Dietrich Lubs in 1978, the
DW 30 is an early example of the digital watch and a shining example of Braun's Bauhaus-tradition design.
the strap exudes functional minimalist perfection – it is attached to the body
of the watch by means of four cross-headed screws that are incorporated into a
watch was only produced until 1981 and this is one of only 3000 ever made, making
this is an extremely rare and highly sought-after item.
a handful have appeared in modern design sales in the top London auction houses
over the past decade or so.
watch is in very good vintage used condition with some expected minor surface signs of
age and wear but no significant damages or signs of repair. The face has some
minor surface scratches consistent with a few bumps over the years. The smooth leather strap shows a little wear also, but I would
nevertheless describe it as being in uncommonly good used condition.
of the watch's original functions still work - pressing the side buttons cause
the light to come on or minutes & seconds and date to be shown. I will include two brand new spare batteries with the sale.

Paypal is accepted and I do not add a surcharge to cover their fees. UK buyers only may also pay by cheque or postal order. If it's a cheque, please allow 7 to 10 days for it to clear. In exceptional circumstances it may be possible for overseas customers to pay by another means such as bank transfer in GBP£ by prior arrangement.
All buyers please make contact within 3 days of auction. Payment is required within 7 days.
It has become necessary to offer only tracked forms of postage for high value items. This is because
of the increasing number of instances of attempted fraud and I'm acting
on unequivocal advice that I have received from eBay and Paypal. Please be
assured that the postage options shown are calculated at cost, with a
minimal handling fee to cover packaging materials for larger items. I always pack to a professional standard; please see my feedback page for customer testimonies. If you have any questions about any of this please contact me.
All non-paying bidders are, without exception, reported to eBay. This is not for the sake of being vindictive, but because eBay charges retrospective fees calculated on the actual sale price of items and this money needs to be retrieved. It's hard enough to make ends meet on here as it is! Thank you for your understanding. Please refer to eBay's policy on non-payment for more information, including its ramifications for the bidder.
Condition of items
Please note that, unless clearly stated otherwise, my listings are for vintage/antique items and therefore, by definition, are not going to be in the same condition you would expect from a brand new item. Please be assured that I always endeavour to offer the most accurate description possible of the item's condition and take multiple illustrative photographs.
Vintage electrical items
Vintage electrical items are sold in their original condition without electrical guarantee, so must always be safety checked by a qualified electrician (in the country of intended use) before use.
Returns are possible, if reported within 7 days and by prior arrangement, if a mistake has been made in the listing and the item is not as described, but for no other reason. I'm afraid that straightforward buyer's remorse does not qualify and that all return costs must be borne by the buyer.
Thanks very much for taking the time to read this. If there is anything I haven't covered please don't hesitate to contact me.
