    If it's genuine it stems from the SS Artillerie school 130.

    AFAIK, there were only 2 SS Artillery schools, one in Glau, and the other in Beneschau. Later, they were renamed, respectively, SS Artillery School I & II.

    Perhaps, No.130 is the training unit or class the owner belonged to?

    resize the pic you have...if you open it with Windows Picture manager, under Picture, then Resize..or with whatever you are using, you can google ''resize pic '', that should give you complete instructions...if you right click on the picture, then left click the ''properties'' it will tell you the size....it must be under 500kb,
    I'm sure someone else can give better instructions than I

    It's WW2 . M-16 models were used in WW2 . The opposite being mathematcically impossible.

    I have no doubt your watch is genuine. I'm being cautious with the engraving though. I'm not saying it's good or fake, it's just that so many have bene engraved AFTER the war as souvenir purposes that one has to be careful . IF everything is legit and confirmed , then you have something worth quite a lot . I'm no expert in waches for a price quote, but you can ask Heuer .

    My mistake ! Iconfused Mess (the place ) with Messen (measure) . so it is a target aiming school.

    One good start would be the watch itself. it seems legit at Tagheuer. If it's not then you have an answer, but if it's yes it doesn't mean the engraving is legit because it could be post WW2 on a good watch. What pleads for a good one is the german "ß" . Many fakers would use "ss" instead because the saw it spelled that way on the internet and don't have it on their keyboard. this is only one clue.
