my observations

the bezel & crystal look to be perfect. the dial and hands are quite good, but i do notice a little wabi on the hour and seconds hand lume (maybe poor lighting), and i dont like how the "2" overlaps the minutes subdial. the case looks to have been refinished, as the texture of the bead-blast appears a little too rough textured. whomever did the cleanup did a nice job, though.

anyone know if the movement should be heuer-signed for these bundeswehr issue pieces?

all that said, if the price is right - i'd love to have this piece. a display back is a nice touch to enjoy the valjoux 230 movement in all it's hand-wind, column-wheel glory!
