    Hello Hartkern
    The fuze you have is the original No (17) fuze produced by Rheinmettall at their Sommerda plant , if you look at my picture no 1 you will see your fuze , in the picture mine has the rubber band over the clock.

    The very early (17) had external clocks and had two charging pins , as the clocks were prone to the ingress of moisture and to try to quiten the clocks a Rubber band was fitted to these early fuzes see picture 1

    Next came Emergency pattern , which consisted of a Steel upper sleeve , due to the shortage of Aliminunium at the time , These fuzes had just 1 charging pin see picture 2

    next was the 1940 pattern in which the clock was sleeved in an Ali tube that was threaded for the gaine see picture 3
    after that came the 1941 patt in which the clock was housed in a plastic sleeve see pictures 4 and 5

    There were unmarked Fuzes , which were found to be the ordinary type (17) fuze and were treated as such .

    One further type (17)B was a much shorter time delay of 132 minutes as against the more normal 72 hour clocks
    Great examples steve.
    On your picture 3 which i think is the 1940 pattern,i am just finishing
    the restoration of mine but it is dated on the switch block 1942.

    would the 1940 pattern have come in as late as 42 with possibly production over run, as the 41 patt should have been out by then.

    The electrical circuit, I thought, was of the charged capacitor/bleed down type of delay- but, that wouldn't require a rubber band to quiet it down- how did this fuze work?
