CP2
Description

For auction is a 1960's Leonidas CP2 Italian Military issued (nr. 266) 43mm well worn patina dial and bezel great case flyback valjoux 222. Some military watch collectors only want pristine perfect. Others, like myself, don't mind a military used military watch. This watch is showing the life it lived on its well worn bezel and heavy patina dial. To me and my sensibilities its patina enhances the watch and look (and have thought that for forever; patina diehard over here) but definitely it isn't for all. If it IS for you, well this is an awesome CP2. It is one of the most bodacious vintage military chronographs and still a relative high value. Not a lot of people know this but the Bund watch of German military fame owes its origins to this watch; the brand Leonidas was bought to obtain this watch and the military contract (or so I've been told anecdotally). Working very well and presented on a gorgeous leather strap.
