Re: Heuer Bundeswehr *LINK*
In Response To: Heuer Bundeswehr *LINK* ()

hello, john:

we have several readers who know a lot more about these BWs than I do, but let me give you some information, subject to corrections and additions by other readers. Also, you might want to peruse the BW section of, linked below.

-- It appears to be authentic to me, in all respects; early version, with the 3H marking
-- Engraving on the back is the usual for these BWs; no other engraving on the case, to my knowledge; maybe someone tracks the numbers on the back, but I do not recall ever seeing a registry or index coded to these numbers.
-- Movements were not signed "Heuer". see the scan below, showing all three movements used in these BWs.

I hope this helps; other readers may have more detailed information.




: Hello all,

: We have a Heuer Bundeswehr Valjoux 230 flyback
: chronograph watch and since I'm unfamiliar
: with the details of this model I'd like to
: share a few photos of the movement case and
: dial for the forum's input. Click on the
: link below to see the photos.


: I'd like to learn more about this watch and
: make sure that it is authentic. I'm also
: posting this on other forums to reach other
: Heuer, military and general watch
: enthusiasts.

: Please view the photos and let me know your
: thoughts. My questions are: Do any parts of
: the watch appear non-authentic?

: Should the case be stamped or engraved for this
: model? This back is engraved.

: Is the wording on the case back correct? I've
: seen others that are just marked
: "BUND".

: What can the serial number tell me?

: Was the movement signed on these watches?
: Bridge is Heuer style but the movement is
: unsigned.

: Thank you all.

: John
