    Sinn 142 on BUND?

    I'm thinking of buying a BUND strap
    for my Sinn 142. Anyone out there
    with a photo of theirs?



    regards,
    peter pas

    I don't have a 142 but the Heuer Pasadena has a somewhat similar shaped case which can give you an idea.

    ...here's my "Sinn 142" on a BUND-Strap:



    I think the watch looks pretty cool with this strap - isn't it?

    Nice 142 on BUND, Brainbug. Really cool

    BTW, does anyone know why is it called a BUND Strap? Just curious.

    "Bund" denotes the federal level of government in Germany, and military issue items are marked thus. It is usually spelled in capital letters in engravings etc. As this type of strap is issued for the German airforce (don't know about the other service branches), it is commonly referred to as a "BUND", like the British G10 is called, somewhat incorrectly, a "NATO".

    Here is a pic to add to Crusaders explanation of the derivation of "BUND".
    On this watch back is the word Bundeseigentum which means "property of the state" or in conventional USA speak "government property". Other German military watches may have the word Bundeswehr meaning "Armed Forces of Germany" or just plain BUND.
