Siduna M3440 Professional Fly-Back

Between 1971 and 1973, the Swedish Air Force, otherwise known as the Svenska Flygvapnet, issued a military chronograph produced by Lemania. About 400 units with the ordinance number M3440-051010 were issued to the pilots of the Saab J37 Viggen, an incredibly advanced fighter jet at the time. At the end of their service, most of these watches were returned, but a small number (an estimated 50 – 65 units) escaped retirement. As you can imagine, these “Viggen” chronographs are quite rare, and they’re beloved by military watch collectors worldwide. When they occasionally pop up at auction — and it’s quite unusual that they do — they don’t sit around for long. This history is part of the context for the watch that we’re looking at today — the Siduna M3440 Professional Fly-Back Chronograph.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
