Feb 13, 2012 Actual photography was taken to show letter 'T' above number 6 on the dial (Heuer Bund variant identifier), nothing more and nothing less. Anyway, sorry for the photo quality, if this is something that bothers you, or anyone else in this topic.

Mint condition Heuer Bundeswehr manual winding flyback chronograph issued to the German elite military forces circa early 1970's. This is hand winding Valjoux calibre 230 and is one of the best designed Heuers ever made. It is also one of the most collectible, in particular since it is the most collectible 3H model. 3H is used to denote the luminous content of the tritium. The flyback function allows the chronograph hand to be instantly reset without stopping the chronograph. It has a large case and dial, with large numbers and chronograph sub registers for easy visibility - typical of a military watch. It has a bi directional non ratchet steel rotating bezel which also has large numbers and minute iterations. This watch was the inspiration for many modern military and aviation style watches. The case is brushed stainless steel, and the case back is polished stainless steel held down by four screws. The issue marks on the case back read 'BUNDESWEHR 6645-12-146-3774' Comes on an original German Bundeswehr bund leather strap, which also has military issue numbers stamped on it. Dimensions are 43 mm excluding crown, 47 mm including crown. Lug to lug is 51 mm and the thickness is 12.5 mm.+ More
Hello and thanks for looking.
I had sent a picture of my recently acquired Heuer Bund to an acquaintance and he pointed out that the watch did not appear to have one of the known dial variations in the very informative article 'A pictoral review of the Heuer Bundeswehr chronograph and it's many dial variations' on Brown-Snout.com . The difference is that the 3H on my dial is large font, but the dial of my watch does not have the cut off numerals and also has the small 'T' which again is not a variation covered in the article except in the short sentence that follows:
That said, it is arguable that the best indicators for whether a watch is from the '60s, and most true to the Bundeswehr specification, are:
- the presence of the standard sized Heuer logo
- either a standard 3H-symbol, or a T-symbol, or both
- the presence of the standard sized font
However, a few have been seen with unusual variations in the style of the 3H-symbol. Perhaps Heuer changed the 3H printing screens at some point in production? Perhaps these 3H-symbols were added by the unscrupulous?
After searching the net for images and additional articles, I was able to find a few images of Bunds with similar dials, but no articles or posts confirming that the dial variation was known/legitimate or not. Thus my post here. I would greatly appreciate any feedback on the watch. Thanks again for looking and for your time.
