LEONIDAS CP-2 ITALIAN ARMY ISSUED 43MM VALJOUX 222 FLYBACK TRITIUM PATINA DIALLeonidas
For auction is a vintage 1960s Leonidas CP-2 flyback Valjoux 222 issued 43mm manual winding steel with heavy patina. These watches are incredible; Leonidas won the contract to produce the CP-2 and did an incredible job. In fact they did such a good job they ending up getting bought so Germany could produce their Bund watch modeled exactly on this one. However there are some differences; the Leonidas has shaper beveled lugs which makes it the better pieces to wear. This particular example is well worn; the bezel has a ton of wear/patina and the dial has some lume loss...but the overall effect is rugged handsomeness. A great piece and much less common than the German HeuerBund variant; having owned and worn many of those but never a Leonidas until now you don't realize just how nice the Leonidas is.
