Age: April 1966
Case: Stainless steel one piece case. Original untouched condition. This has never been polished; I’ll leave it up to you whether you choose to polish the case, but you won’t find me messing with the original contours and lines on this classic military case design. The case back is marked Wrist Watch DTU-2A/P MIL-W3818B MFG. PART NO. XZ73065 FED. STOCK NO. 6645-066-4279 U.S.

Date: April 1966
Crown: Original unsigned crown.
Dial: Original, factory finished military spec. 24 hour dial with some beautiful patina, particularly on the original lume. Appropriately signed “SWISS” at 6 O’Clock.Sub seconds dial
Crystal: Acrylic crystal recently polished.
Movement: What can you say? These military spec. manual wind watch movements were built tough. This particular movement is signed Benrus and is one of their hacking movements (which means that the sweep second hand stop when the crown is pulled out so that military operations could be synchronized down to the second). My master watchmaker has performed a full inspection and servicing on this watch. The watch was completely disassembled, the appropriate parts were cleaned in the ultrasonic and then oiled using the finest quality Swiss Moebius oils. It was regulated and is keeping good time. This watch is not waterproof. Please take care to keep it dry.
These vintage military watches are in style right now. Rather than buying a modern watch that’s pretending to be a vintage military piece, why not buy the real deal that will continue to increase in value and rarity as time goes on.
