I have this watch on layaway with my jeweler. The watch has been totally gone through. Dial is untouched except for being relumed. She's a hand cranker. Floating stem tub for the crown. this is done so that the crown can be ajusted with diving gloves on. I think it gives it a cool look. I will take some more pic's once I have it in hand.

I really like these old divers.
This watch was purchased new in Nam at a PX. If this watch could talk.

I like your taste in watches, you have a good eye.

Awesome pick-up, Big Kahuna! There's just something about vintage military watches... 8)

Thanks mort, I could not agree more with you. I have been on the hunt for just the right watch from this time frame.
