Got a cool watch? Let's see it.
 
It's been a while since we've had a watch thread so...

Found this over the weekend.
I have boxes of stuff left from my Dads house that I have yet to go through. This was in one of his boxes.

Inscribed on the back is:
"Bureau of ships
US Navy
Comparing Watch
10612-1943"

Inside it has the usual markings along with a U.S. Govt stamp.

We'll see if we can get going again

Had one of these for many years, my dad won it in Korea playing poker with the USMC. Then the strap broke while I was riding on the freeway one day. :cry

Fucking classic. :poser:poser:poser:poser

"Five long years he wore this watch, up his ass. Then, he died of dysentery, he gave me the watch. I hid this uncomfortable hunk of metal up my ass two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the watch to you."

Stumbled on this a little while ago. Poor man's navitimer. Quartz. Keeps great time and helps me convert exchange rates and figure out my ETA here in the pacific.
