ABOUT THIS WATCH:
Purchased by me from a family of an ex YU-AVI pilot of a MIG29 jet.
About 2000 Heuer SG1550 were delivered to the YU ministry of defence in the mid 70ies. All these had unmarked casebacks unlike the German variant with the "Bundeswehr" inscription. As "Bundeswehr" translates to "german military" the reason for the lack of inscriptions is rather logical.
Very rare to be found especially in these conditions.
There are no real damages anywhere and the watch works well. The setting of the time sometimes slips a little when turning the crown counterclockwise. Chrono hand resets to 0 marker. It runs nicely but its an old watch (40 years +) so no warranty and complains about the accuracy, please.
Selling this watch out of my personal collection since I have 5 of these.
