Had a Swiss made, Juvenia, attached to the handset of my PRC25 every night, so whoever had guard had a trust worthy timepiece in his hands.
This was back in late ’68 through ’69, when we humped all day, broke up into platoon sized ambushes, every night.
That Swiss made automatic tool a beating and out shined many a Seiko I was offered in trade, or sale.
My oldest son had it cleaned and still has it, though it finally gave up. Cost me $250.00 at the px in Di An……long ago and far away!

Automatic watches are great … you can wind them if you haven’t worn them in a while.

I wish someone with editing skills would double-check the articles … “they are starting to except pre-orders” .. ACCEPT is the proper word; anti-hunters call us stupid, let’s not give them examples.

Article omits the price. Would be nice if there were a version with a calibrated rotating bezel. I’d like to see a metal bracelet offered that matches the finish.
