Heuer's Bundeswehr Flyback Chronograph Empty

Saw this great article at Wound for Life about Heuer's Bundeswehr Flyback Chronograph. It talks about
how this pilot's watch was, or is one of the most recognisable military watches out there, and how many
brands we know today like Bell & Ross, Sinn, and Kobold might not have been the way they are without
this iconic Heuer.

All in all there are evidently more than two dozen different variations of the Heuer Bund with various
different marker sizes, and logos like the "3H" which stands for Hydrogen-3/tritium. There were even
different movements like the Valjoux 22, 222, and 230. With the unique cases allowing those movements
to actually be front loaded into the watches. Other details like PVD 60-click bezels, long stem pushers,
nice simple dials, and those cool Bund straps are just some of things that make the watch so special.

Here is Wound for Life's link for you...
