The rarest of Heuer chronographs? (scans) *LINK*

This is arguably the most rare of Heuer Bundeswehr chronographs (and possibly the most rare of all Heuer chronographs): a unique prototype powered by the Caliber 12 automatic movement. This was submitted to the Bundeswehr for consideration, but never adopted. unusual for a piece intended for the military in that it does not have a continuously-running seconds hand, which has been replaced by a 12-hour chronograph register. This amazing, and unique, piece is owned by Gerd R. Lang, owner of Chronoswiss and formerly an engineer with Heuer.
