Recieved a reply from O+W today

Your watch has been identified as a MB2824 model built between 1998 and 2017 approximately.

Good to have a model number, and a very rough date.

This plastic tough case came with my watch, I guess its original.

Great info, thank you. I read somewhere that a basic O+W was one of the watches purchased by some American servicemen, Vietnam era. Is that the M series?

Anyway, this is currently my daily driver; really enjoying the watch.

The lume on mine is virtually dead now, which is a shame.

Wow, that is the first one i have seen, other than mine. The original strap on mine was a green nato, which didn't allow me to get to the spring bars, I ended up cutting it off. I like the rubber strap I have on mine now, as the watch sits flatter on my wrist. Yes indeed I thinks it's an ETA movement. As per my pic, after servicing mine is keeping fantastic time now. Is there anything else you can tell me?

I wonder what date they were made, and what they sold for?

I have emailed them, let's see what they come back with.
