Excellent original dial. 34mm case is plastic with full military nomenclature.  The case is very good with slight oxidation from exposure to sun, humidity and oil.  The 7 jewel Benrus movement is near mint and was recently overhauled.  Original winding crown. This type of wristwatch was used primarily in field operations.

DSCN4510.JPG (69792 bytes)DSCN4511.JPG (31396 bytes)USN Military Watch Chronograph Type III from 1981 Stocker and  Yale.  Excellent example of rare short lived US Military Watch that replaced the famous Benrus Type I and II.   This the US Navy pilot issued version from 1983.  With a nicely proportioned 35x42mm case, this was the first military watch to incorporate self-luminous tritium vials. Excellent (never issued) condition. A brand new battery has been installed. The watch dates from 1981. This watch is powered by a NEW Eveready 395 watch battery.  The watch has full military marking on the reverse.  This is an interesting looking timepiece with lots of practical features.  In addition to time, there is a chronograph function, second event timer (split chronograph), day, date and alarm.  I've used the same type of watch while traveling and it is very well thought out and useful. It is actual military issue and has met rigorous military specifications. It is not a factory second or government rejected watch.

The case is made of an alloy which has been powder coated with a durable black paint.  The crystal is made of hardened glass.  There is a small nick in the glass where the "Tues" is (see picture....very hard to see...).  The tritium self-illumination system is extremely weak given this watch is now over 20 years old but if you look at the watch at night, it does still self glow.  Because it is so weak though, you will need a light source to read this watch in the dark.  In light, the watch has excellent readability. This is an excellent condition watch (never issued) and comes complete with black nylon flight strap (watch can be worn on the wrist or over one's flight jacket)!  I have one of these in my collection and it is one of my personal favorites.  I cannot emphasize enough how rare this watch is.  Consider adding this to your collection now.  How many of these have you seen?

These unique watches feature a built in high grade electronic compasses and were specially made by Timex for Maratac™ for a government contract. Who were they made for?  Let's just say that when Osama bin Laden is captured, some of the folks making it happen may well be wearing these watches.  These were designed to use Maratac 1 pc. watch bands so the watch can be removed from the band and the compass laid directly on top of a map. The face is sterile and does not any unnecessary printing.  This was done to eliminate confusion and allow clear night time illumination via Timex's Indiglo system.  This watch uses solid fixed bars to secure the strap from all of natures hazards. This watch is water resistant and depth rated to 100m. (Note: This is a land navigation compass watch. As with any water resistant watch, it was not designed for prolonged diving).  

SPECIFICATIONS:

The AQC™ Compass Watch ships complete with a Black Maratac 20mm band with calibration instructions. 

A great looking and functional land navigation watch!

DSCN3884.JPG (177978 bytes)DSCN3886.JPG (114738 bytes)BUND Military Chronograph by Tengler: Designed for Astronavigation, Specially adjusted movement, Steel case-- New old stock complete with original star finder wheel, leather case and accessories!  Similar to other Bund watches supplied to NATO during the latter part of the Cold War in Germany by Tutima, Hanhart, Heuer, IWC, Sinn, Arktos, and  Porsche Design, the Tengler is the rarest and perhaps most interesting.  This watch is the Tengler and was manufactured in 1989-90 by Helmut Tengler to the specifications of the German military. This is a genuine German military issue watch that was purchased by the German government.  500 pieces were contracted for and manufactured by Mr. Tengler.  There were perhaps an additional 20 with no serial numbers on the back that were designated as spares and this is one of those.  Unlike other BUND DSCN3887.JPG (141730 bytes) watches, the Tengler was never made for the civilian market. It has the correct German military issue marks on the case back with the word “Bund” stamped in the correct font. The strap is also the original genuine German military issue Bund strap and has got Bund issue number s stamped on it.  The Tengler is a bit different to the other issue watches as it was intended to be used for astronavigation.  Most importantly perhaps, the Lemania 5100 movement was not a stock movement.  The movement was specially adjusted to closer tolerances in light of the precise measurements the watch was intended to be used for.  The watch comes with the original star finder. This was issued to military units that were required to be able to tell true North without satellites or other external navigation aids.  The watch itself is a fantastic looking timepiece, with a functional, practical and military feel to it. It is in mint condition and the dial and hands are also mint. The Lemania 5100 automatic movement was used due to it’s durability. The watch features a solid stainless steel case, screw down crown, 24 hour indicator, 60 minute elapsed timer, 60 second elapsed timer, 12 hour elapsed timer and subsidiary seconds. The day and date is also provided. All functions work correctly and the watch keeps excellent time. Rare and outstanding piece of military memorabilia. Also comes with print out from extract written by Konrad Knirim the author of the book on military wristwatches entitled,  Military Timepiece 150 Years Watches and Clocks of German Forces.  Width is 41 mm excluding crown, 43 mm including crown. The thickness is 14 mm and the lug to lug distance is 44 mm.  The only current production watch I can think of that is comparable to this watch is a Tutima Military chronograph.  The Tutima starts at $3000 for the civilian version.  This actual military issue watch is a specially produced like new timepiece and supplied with an original star finder as well as hard leather case marked W. Germany.  A superb and rare BUND watch complete with issue case and accessories -- Great addition to a mil-watch collection!
