Horological Meandering: Great looking example there.

I have been looking for one for a while but they are rare, and when they did pop up, they were either too expansive or in quite bad condition. I have never known there were ever civilian version of the TG195. Any more info on this you can share please?

Horological Meandering: What's a jaw dropping collection!

Thanks for posting and I can look at these photos all day long. I’ve recently developed a great interest in military chronographs and all these are dream pieces to have.

Horological Meandering: Yes it’s slight different

when compared to the original side by side. However the most notable difference is the reissue has all polished case which is the major negative point. Still it is a faithful and worthy reissue effort I think. I can do some comparison photos when I have time.

Horological Meandering: Yes don’t see them pop up for sale very often.

As it’s a very limited run in 1997 IIRC, can’t remember the exact number though. The original is actually more commonly seen for sale.

Horological Meandering: :D Nothing to do with this handsome man...

I just love the design of these 2 register chronographs and the story about their history. I love Speedy and El Primero too, can’t tell which I love more though. The story behind them are also fasinating. NASA test and the race to produce the first automatic chronograph...

Horological Meandering: It’s a 50s Hanhart 417

I guess it appears modern because the modern watches are mimicking it? But the tell tale sign is the subdial position on the modern watches usually have them cram towards the centre of the dial and don’t have the balanced look of the vintage.
