1940’s LEONIDAS SA Swiss [pre-Heuer] Vintage ATP Military Watch – FHF Cal. 186
1 in stock
Professionally restored and fully serviced in-house here at the Localtime Spa, this is a gents vintage ATP (Army Trade Pattern) military broad arrow watch by Leonidas SA, with a 15j FHF Cal. 186 movement, from the early 1940’s. ATP-issued watches are the true British military watch of WW2 as the later WWW (dirty dozen) were not issued until 1943.
The case [which is correctly marked 1018 between the lugs and with the broad arrow, ATP and serial number #113572 on the caseback] has been professionally cleaned [not polished] and the movement fully serviced. The watch has also received a new, correct plexi-glass and the sector dial and hands have been lightly cleaned. Surely not a safe queen, but an honest and fully authentic survivor from that glorious period, this true WW2 military watch comes on a black calf leather strap, that we think compliments the all original dial patina and lovely hands/numerals, very nicely. We have made many photos of this timepiece, a scan of Konrad Knirim’s ‘British Military Timepieces’ book and some macro close-up shots we took just for fun.
As with all the watches we service in-house here at the Localtime Spa, the BIN price includes a 6-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to ask any questions you might have.
