    Default First Issued Quartz - BUND Tutima / Boccia 728-07

    Guess it was only a matter of time till one gives way to purchasing a quartz. As much as I prefer mechanical pieces, ultimately the temptation was too great and I folded from the thought that it being current issued timepiece.

    For those who are not familiar with this one, its a Bundeswehr (BUND) issued Tutima/Boccia 728-07 with Miyota movement. In use by German Expeditionary forces in Afghanistan.

    Insert of Konrad Knirim page was borrowed from his post on MWR.

    Thanks for looking

    Cheers

    Dan

    Interesting Dan. Not my cuppa, but not all issued watches are and of course it will be historically significant in the future. Whilst some German forces deployed to Bosnia, A'stan is probably their largest and most significant deployment of troops since...Sep '39. Or would that be May '40

    I'm with you on quartz watches though. I've bought a few latterly (Heuer 1000m, Technos Sky Dive, Citizen 800m A'land, Seiko Ashtray), but they're not really my thing. We'll see how they come up in the next few months.
    Cheers all, Colin

    I've considered that one myself - I'll be interested to see how you like it, Dan.

    As for quartz watches, I have a few which I have seen described as "honourary mechanicals" - RAF Seiko Gens 1 and 2, CWC SBS and NVA Ruhla (subject of another post here http://forum.atgvintagewatches.com/s...ead.php?t=2249).

    Regards

    Jon'.

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    I'll be interested to know how I like it as well Jon. BTW read your post on the Texan, just awesome pics. I could you see you were enjoying every minute of it. Grinning like a kid in a lolly shop

    Really nothing fascinating about some modern milwatches. Guess one cant expect the quality or the type of movement from the likes of a cal. 89 or 488 / Sbr. Those days are long gone.
