THE BULOVA UP LEFT WAS SOLD AS A VIETNAM WATCH. NOTE SUB-SECONDS? SO, THE WATCH IS REAL
BUT THE DESIGNATION WAS NOT. PLUS, EXCEPT FOR 10,000 BLANCPAIN   AUTOMATICS FOR THE US NAVY SEALS, 
AUTOMATICS WERE NEVER A MILITARY ISSUE, AS IN US ISSUE ….NEVER HAPPENED. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE “US ARMY” WATCH IS ALSO FAKE. IT IS NOT EVEN A COUNTERFEIT DUE TO THE FACT COMPANY NAMES OR ANYOTHER WRITING, SUCH AS US ARMY OR NAVY WAS PROHIBITED . PROOF OF THIS CAN BE SEEN IN THE VERY WRITING OF HAMILTON AND THE US GOVERNMENT. READ US-GOV-ISSUE-VIETNAM-WATCHES OR CHECK THE POST HEREIN THIS SITE.

IWC,  LONGINES, J LA COULTRE , OMEGA AND OTHER HIGH END WATCHES WERE NOT MADE FOR VIETNAM.

THE THE ONLY HIGH END BRAND TO MAKE WATCHES FOR ISSUE [OUTSIDE OF MARATHON 1980/90S] [ U.S. NAVY SPECA MILITARY HIGH END  W 22176 A, ] WAS BLANCPAIN. THEY WOULD BENEFIT BY USING THE TECHNOLOGY FOR THE 50 FATHOMS.

THE FIRST AUTOMATIC DIVE WATCH FOR MILITARY

The modern scuba diving watch was introduced to the public in 1954 at the annual watch trade show in Basel, Switzerland; With existing contracts with the Air Forces and Army, the US Navy entered into an agreement with the Bulova Watch Company, and it’s Bulova Research and Development Laboratories, to develop and manufacture a new dive watch.

THE 1964 BULOVA 666 MODEL LAUNCHED ALL FUTURE LINES AND MODELS OF THE FAMOUS NAVY MILITARY DIVE WATCHES DURING VIETNAM WAR AND ALL FUTURE BULOVA 333 FEET AND 666 FEET DIVE WATCHES.

IT WAS FROM 1958 THROUGH 961 THAT BULOVA, UNDER US NAVY CONTRACT TO PERFECT THE FIRST AUTOMATIC DIVE WATCH WITH PLEXIGLAS CRYSTAL, WAS FINALLY SUCCESSFUL AND IT PASSED ALL GOVERNMENT TESTS INCLUDING DIVING TO 392 FEET.

WHILE STILL IN DEVELOPMENT, IN 1963, BULOVA DROPPED THEIR CONTRACT & THE CONTRACT WAS TAKEN OVER BY BLANCPAIN, WHO PRODUCED THE TR-900 DIVE WATCH. THE TR-900 DIVE MATCHED MUCH OF THE SPECS, CASING AND OTHER DESIGNS OF BULOVA’ FINAL VERSION, INCLUDING THE VERY LOOK AND DESIGN DOWN TO THE RADIUM MARKERS, BEZEL AND BEZEL INSERT. ABOUT 1000 TR-900’S WOULD BE PRODUCED UNDER TWO CONTRACTS FOR THE NAVY DURING 1964 & 1965 AND ISSUED TO NAVY UDT FROGMAN TEAMS AND MARINE RECON UNITS DURING THE VIETNAM WAR. AROUND THE SAME TIME, BULOVA RELEASED THEIR PLEXIGLAS AUTOMATIC 666 DIVE WATCH FOR COMMERCIAL SALES AND WERE AVAILABLE AT MILITARY PX. IT IS IN THIS TIME FRAME THAT ELGIN PRODUCED THEIR FIRST AUTOMATIC WATER PROOF, ALL STEEL DIVE WATCH WITH RADIUM MARKERS.

ADDITIONALLY, THE FIRST OFFICIAL US MILITARY DIVER WATCH WAS IS THE RESULT OF THREE GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS FROM 1958,TO 1961, [MIL-W-3181 / MIL-W-22176 / MIL-W-22176A]. THUS THERE WERE NO OMEGA WATCHES ESPECIALLY THE ONE ABOVE. ONLY ON EBAY WILL YOU FIND LONGINES. OMEGA, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre OR ANY OF THE EBAY ONLY OFFERS…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LONGINES NEVER EVER MADE ANY MILITARY WATCH I HAVE EVER DISCOVERED. WE HAVE ALL THE SPECS AND ALL THE COMPANIES THAT PARTICIPATED AND NONE WERE EVER DISCOVERED. UNLIKE WWII, WITH COMPANIES MANUFACTURING MILITARY WATCHES  FOR PILOTS AND OTHER OFFICERS, NONE WERE MADE FOR THE NAM.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I FIND MY SELF WRITING A GREAT DEAL ON THE ABOVE DESIGNATION AND PROPERTY MARKS, YET PEOPLE STILL INVEST HUNDREDS INTO PURELY FICTION WATCHES. THESE ARE NON COUNTERFEIT OR KNOCK-OFFS OR LOOK A LIKES.. NOPE. FOR THESE ARE SIMPLY MADE FOR EBAY… NOTE THE WRIST WATCH WATERPROOF {WWW} DESIGNATION? WWII BRITISH. YUP, THAT WAS USED FOR WWII WATCHES BY THE BRITISH. THE BROADARROW? ALSO BRITISH. THE KINGS PROPERTY MARK. AND NO, BRITAIN WAS NEVER INVOLVED IN ANY WAY OR FORM IN THE VIETNAM WAR. AND, THERE IS NO WAY THE US WOULD STAMP LIKE THIS. YES, THERE WERE AUSTRALIANS FROM DAY NONE, BUT THE BRITISH DID NOT SUPPLY WATCHES…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GET A LOAD OF THE “INTERNATIONAL” BRANDING! AGAIN WE HAVE A US MILITARY [VIETNAM WAR]  LOOKING CASE. BUT INTERNATIONAL NEVER MADE A WATCH FOR NAM AND IT HAS WWW AND BROADARROW. SOME NUT CASE INVESTED 450.00 FOR ONE OF THESE. AM I CALLING THIS PERSON NAMES CAUSE THEY INVESTED NOT KNOWING? NO! I WROTE THE PERSON. AFTER HE GOT THE WATCH, AFTER WEARING FOR 5 MONTHS, HE WROTE ASKING IF THERE WAS ANY WAY I COULD HELP HIM GET A REFUND….

IF THE WATCH HAS THIS YELLOW LOOK FOR THE HANDS INDICES NUMBERS ET AL. IT IS A FAKE. YES, A FAKE PLASTIC WATCH AT THAT. THE NEXT UPGRADE WAS THE FACT VIETNAM WATCH CASES COULD BE MADE OF PLASTIC. WESTCLOX BENRUS AND OTHERS WENT FOR IT/ BUT WHY IS IT A FAKE?

ANY WATCH WITH A-7  AND/OR AVIGATION [NAVIGATION AND AVIATION]  THAT IS NOT IN A 1930’S SILVER POCKET WATCH CASE WITH DUAL SUB REGISTERS AND SPLIT SECONDS MOVEMENT WITH A BULB CROWN HOLDING A PUSHER IN ITS CENTER IS NOT AN A-7 AVIGATION. THE REAL DEAL WAS A LONGINES. THEY TOOK A SPLIT SECOND POCKET WATCH, ADDED LUGS AND WALLA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HERE IS ANOTHER CASE BACK WITH A7  AVIGATION ALSO A FAKE CAUSE IT IS NOT A SILVER WATCH AND THE ABOVE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AND YET WE HAVE ANOTHER. ALL THREE CASE BACKS ARE DIFFERENT. MEANING THEY ARE IN DIFFERENT CASES.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOW WE HAVE THE REAL DEAL, NOTE THE WRITING AND LONGINES;
