1960’s Leondias Bund CP2 Italian Army Issue

£5,500.00

Seriously rare watches are something we live for, and this is a seriously rare watch. Following a long line of issued watches this Leondias is an Italian armed forces issued CP2 watch. A big watch for its day it fits into today’s modern sizes really well, plus it definitely passes the “cool” factor. E.I markings on the case back stands for Esercito Italiano (Italian Army), since the Italian airforce had their own military marking (A.M.I) we know they weren’t issued to them. But in fact, they were issued to the Italian Army Helicopter Pilots.

Originally these watches had a glossy black dial, unlike the later Heuer Bund examples. Of course over time this one has lost its glossy appeal but this is a watch built to sustain being battered around by the military. Much like the well known and similar looking Heuer Bundeswehr. With a thick aluminium bezel and a stainless steel case that is held together via four screws at the back, these were made to the same spec and feature the same black dial and hands layout. An incredibly cool watch with the history to back itself up!

Interesting Fact  “LEONIDAS was founded in 1841, some 120 years later it merged with Heuer creating the largest manufacturer of stopwatches”
