Dienstuhr (Service Watch)
Relations between Bellana - Spezialfabrik für Eisenbahner-Dienstuhren in Neuwied and the Deutsche Bundesbahn (German Federal Railways) are reported everywhere, but nobody knows them aktually - me included. And the use of divers watches there are at least strange. However, customers got enhanced quality: The precision regulatur, standard in today's ETA 2824-2, in 1970 still justifiend an individual calibre designation (ETA 2773 instead 2772)
Boden Edelstahl (Stainless Steel Back)
This indicates almost always a plated case with steel back. Nevertheless this watch has a steel case, and likely due to the chromed turnable bezel the word "Boden" (back) wasn't left out, as common for all-steel cases.
