FSOT: Heuer 1550 SG Bundeswehr Flyback Chronograph - $4300 *LINK* *PIC*

Heuer 1550 SG Bundeswehr Flyback Chronograph Watch - Early 'T' Dial Variant - 4 Digit Serial

Great looking German Airforce Flyback chronograph complete with military caseback markings. I've included two sets of pictures in the linked photo gallery (sorry, I'm not a pro photographer) to try and show the watch in both indoor and outdoor light. The overall lume is a greenish tint on both the tritium dial and hands so the outdoor dial shot is more true to life regarding coloring. The bezel is minty (probably from a Bundeswehr 90s overhaul) so anything visible in the pictures is lint and not a scratch. Also most likely from an 80s/90s military overhaul are the tritium hands which are in excellent condition and are a near match to the green hued lume on the dial.

Mechanically this thing runs flawlessly and winds like a champ thanks to the full overhaul it received last year. I will include the servicing work request and payment receipt with the watch. I will also include the CHRONEXT Warranty which runs through next June (6/2020) as I purchased the watch there and the warranty is transferable.
