                 In 1954, the french army had facilities in Germany and issued war reparation watches.

 

                

                        This Hanhart was probably used by the luftwaffe      before being issued to France

 

 

                  Same print as Luft wristwatches.

 

 

        The Stowa was used in the Indochina and Algeria war

Many watches from various brands were issued to the navy, we don't know about them because they were not engraved.

This one was stolen some years ago and i couldn't find another.

 

It came from the BAN Toulon facility like this ZRC

    The most common is the Tudor Submariner. Many versions were issued since the late fifties. A few were engraved.

 

 

I had some over the years and sold them, now they became impossible to find.
