Why We Love it

One of our most oft-requested timepieces, the Heuer Bundeswehr was a General Issue chronograph for a number of military forces (including the German Federal Defense Forces) throughout the 1960s and 70s.  With their military design, robust flyback functionality, and storied connection with watchmaker Helmut Sinn, the Bundeswehr has achieved a cult-like status with collectors worldwide, and prices have begun to climb rapidly in the past few years, with good original examples becoming hard to find.

This particular example features a clean "Civilian" dial with no military markings, but does have a military stamped case back - not at all unusual given their long production run and batch production.  This is also known as a "T-Only" dial among collectors due to the small marking indicating the use of tritium lume just above 6 o'clock.  Interestingly, this particular example also features hour markers not "cut off" at 2,4,8 and 10, which is very common, and is only one of a handful known to the Bundeswehr collecting community!  Furthermore, this piece is an excellent example in all-original condition, featuring a sharp case without the common over polishing, original pushers, crown, and bi directional rotating bezel.

If you've been looking for an honest Bundesweher, or are a fan of vintage military watch designs in general, throw some real consideration at this guy - you will not be disappointed!
