    SAAF Lemania 5012...



    Although perhaps overlooked as it appears reasonably readily available (until you actually start hunting for a decent one!), don't underestimate the Heuer Bund...



    If the Heuer was as rare as the SAAF or SwAF, surely it would be right up at the top of the list?

    Regards

    Jon'.

    I know the Hanhart has been mentioned but the KM (Kriegsmarine) variant would definitely be on of the most desired. Pics borrowed from Joe A @ MWR

    Don't see them often with the eagle on the back.... usually they were polished off right? And Kriegsmarine always had KM somewhere and red detailing on teh dial... or is the 'red' something I just made up...?

    Default My favourite mil issue chronograph is ...

    The Hamilton Chrono with the trusty Valjoux 7733 movement issued by the RN, RAF and RAN.



    Here's my Hamilton Royal Navy issue Chrono from 1972. Would love an nice RAN issue example!

    Mine has an inservice swapped 'sterile' dial - love it!

    BTW, what do you think about my goat skin and 'kangaroo ***' NATO strap?

    Kind regards

    Chris
