Link to eBay auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Heuer-Bundeswehr-3H-Flyback-Chrono-Valjoux-230/322491583344

For sale is a 4 digit Heuer Bund I purchased from WUS recently.

Reason for sale is: 1) I have two bunds, 2) immediately after I got this, another watch I wanted popped up so I'm doing a catch and release to hopefully fund that purchase, and 3) taxes hurt :/.

Details about the watch:
  • Serviced in Fall 2016 at Sinn Frankfurt
  • It comes with the original Bund strap, as well as an unworn Bund strap and a German language manual for the watch.
  • No box/papers.
  • Valjoux 230 movement with flyback complication.
  • The case has never been polished and still has a nice flat area around the bezel.
  • It is a manual wind watch with a 44 hr+ power reserve. It is in remarkable condition for a watch that was issued nearly 50 years ago.
  • Dimensions: 43mm case diameter, 50mm lug to lug, 12 mm height, 20mm lug width.

Note:

I purchased this from WUS recently from someone who purchased it from a well known vintage Heuer collector in Germany. I spoke with the original collector recently about this watch and he re-affirmed that everything about the watch was original (and am happy to prove this correspondence, if you'd like). I would like to make a note that though the original collector claimed this was all original, I found through conversation with other collectors and my watchmaker that this dial might be a re-dial. I've heard plausible explanations for either scenario, but no definitive answer. If you wish to discuss this further, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

Sorry for posting this so close to the end of the auction - I had no idea WUS had this eBay section :|.

FYI I am open to bids below my price on the auction but would prefer it if you DM me on eBay or here so we can discuss the specific value.
