PLEASE EXCUSE TYPOS

The 1970 HEUER/LEMANIA Heuer Bundeswehr was perhaps the best Military time piece ever made. Designed for the armed forces of modern German, and for other NATO TROOPS [European NATO military forces], it was solidly built of the highest grade stainless steel with a glare resistant powder coat black dial , with illuminated white numerals, chapters and white hands with tritium inserts, it had a large rotating bezel in black with numbers and marker that made viewing it fast and secure, and besides chronograph timing features, had a flyback feature [not the start stop and reset, but start and quick fly back with auto start].

The case was designed from the best casing system ever designed. Not some fancy named oyster case that had the same screw back as just about every other watch. But a single case system designed from the world famous and proved 1928 Wyler   patented single case and then adding the Nivada Grenchen/Roamer Patented lugs/bezel screw system which locked the crystal on top of the case.

Each case began with a solid block of the best stainless steel. Its super resistance to Rust and Corrosion made it the finest steel available. Each case was milled from a block and then hand drilled for the tubes. the movement would fit from the top. It was NOT a bubble back — roamer used the bubble back for its automatics — rather a pan or pot with flat bottom. Like a pan or pot, the movement sat into this case. its dial flat to the top, its solid , thick chronograph mm off the floor or pan pot bottom. looking across the case, only the dial hands would be over the top.

Then, the two part Wyler patented stem system was utilized. half in the movement half in the crown. they joined to gether to seal the movement further. Pushers were sealed with rings, then a seal placed around this “pie” of movement forming the “crust”. Then a top hat crystal, like those for NIVADA GRENCHEN CROTON and ROAMER patented  was laid atop the seal. the crystal and case forming the void filled with the crystal seal. The NIVADA GRENCHEN CROTON and ROAMER patented bezel with lugs and 4 holes tapped into the underside corners below each lug, was placed atop this mixture and 4 screws were driven into the holes pulling the bezel onto the case causing the seal to compress sealing the entire case.

I must emphasize that the case was created from steel, the best steel.—- and not cast

Finely, the movements used in the Heuer Bundeswehr were the Valjoux 22/ 222/ 230. Important to know, the with Flyback Function is unique to only certain chronographs. It enable the use to start the timing center seconds hand and then “fly it back” without having to stop and reset and start timing again.

The 4 screw back: BUNDESWEHR 6645-12-146-3774 USE THE CA 230 WITH FLYBACK  & the words “Heuer-Leonidas S.A. Biel, Switzerland”  on the case interior –Not just Heuer-Leonidas.

SAME AS
Dugena 4002   Junghans 688.11   Tissot 2060:

NO LEONIDAS HERE

I noticed you wrote Bundes-wehn instead of Bundeswehr on the description. you also did not add this info to your description leading people to believe you are offering a HEUER made German “Bundeswehr”–
as pricing of the bids demonstrates yet we can see it is a fake, or, in reality,a counterfeit Bundeswehr.
even the bezel is incorrect . the case is incorrect I would state that the movement is also incorrectly
I am sure your this info will show up on timefraud. because it is already in all the forums,
I wanted to give you a heads up that it is counterfeit….
