    Notice more and more military pieces appearing on the forum and testing the waters to see if this thread has legs.

    Personally not a lot to offer but will kick of with this U.S. Army piece

    Will contribute to get this idea of a thread going. Shouldn´t be too hard.

    My "sub 9" Viggen. Shown quickly before @styggpyggeno1 shows his ;)

    Great idea..I'm inspired!
    Here's my favourite, A Glashütte Tutima Urofa 59 Flieger chroronograh from 1941. An amazingly beautiful, tough as nails flyback chrono that keeps COSC time. This is a pure tool watch. 39 mm for great legibility, pushers and crown are ergonimically designed for in-flight functionality and the radium hands and markers still have life in them!

    The 17 jewel guilded movement with balance shock absorber is a marvel.

    I've stopped collecting military watches for the simple reason that military watches demand a very high degree of dedication for which my schedule won't allow. Nevertheless, I snatch one up once in a while.

    Cheers,

    Well, there are whole sites dedicated to these already, so we might as well indulge here. Viggens have already been discovered, unfortunately of those of us without one. One changed hands last week for near US$15k. @styggpyggeno1 's retirement plan is working quite well at the moment. :thumbsup:
