    Hi,
    I'm a french WW2 collector and I found a stopwatch Heuer used, it seems, on german's submarines to calculate time for torpedos.
    Does anyone have informations about this item, please ? model, year, type etc...

    Diam : 50mm

    Thank you in advance

    Hi, I am certainly no expert when it comes to these stopwatches, but it seems to be a 'Ref 21' as shown in Heuer's 1936 catalogue on page 24-

    Here is the link to the catalogue too-

    Presumably yours has a Roskopf movement also, just with Heuer branded dial too.
    Hope that helps?
    Thanks, Steve

    Thank you to appreciate my collection.
    I know the value of the stopwatch, about 600-800€ because mine is stamped Kriegsmarine :)
