Before TAG Heuer, there was simply Heuer, a watch manufacturer founded by Edouard Heuer in Saint-Imier, Switzlerand in 1894. Starting in the 1930s Heuer started manufacturing for the German military and air force which brings us to the stunning Heuer Bundeswehr Chronograph. Manufactured in the 1960s and 1970s, the Heuer Bundeswehr Chronograph was designed and built to German military specifications with a focus on rugged durability and dependability. It featured a sturdy steel case measuring a large 43mm across ensuring it would be readable under even the most strenuous of conditions. This military-issued Flyback chronograph boasted a robust manually-wound movement which was built to be relatively simple as well as long-lasting. The black dial featured white numerals, two sub-dials for the chronograph function, and a red “3/H” German military stamp. These models are relatively scarce nowadays given the nature of the profession of those who wore them but analog/shift has a great looking, well-maintained example available now for purchase at its online store.
