Artillery chronographs of the German army are rarely found, especially this model.
They were mainly made for Kriegsmarine officers, but all gunners (officers of course) used this type of chronographs.
Leonidas and Alpina are the most common.
During the war, these kinds of watches were only issued to the army and officers.
Adolf Lüser even made personal deliveries to Hitler from 1934 to 1939 (see the link below for further information:
http://www.watchtime.net/magazine-de/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/KU_0605_hitleruhren.pdf )
During the war, Adolf Lünser was a very important supplier of the Wehrmacht, Kriegsmarine and Luftwaffe.
As early as 1925 he supplied the 100.000 mann Heer of the Weimar Republiek and continued to do so until the war, he was also a prominent supplier for high-ranking Nazi’s (see link above).
After the war, this company disappeared from records.
