    Please consider doing a small Orsa "memory lane" review or something. That would be cool.

    Well, I only have two "truly" military watches, and they are not even a genuine issue. Examples of the first were issued in 1981 though, right after the Rolex Submariner, and right before being replaced by it's own quartz version. The CWC Royal Navy Diver, the only watch I currently own with fixed lugs. And the next, the Marathon SAR (IIRC, this was of the 2007 contract overrun, or was it 2005?). Issued to the Canadian military SAR Techs and NASA divers.





    Now then, how strict are we being with definitions? Are military inspired or style watches welcomed here? I have this O&W MP 2824 that I'm pretty fond of...

    Regards, T Bone

    Even a broken watch shows correct time once or twice a day. I ought to know, I have a few!
