Cheers buddy. I love this watch - it replaced one identical, that I had to sell (for various reasons) a few years back.

Regarding age…… absolutely no clue whatsoever!!?? Sorry…..

wouldn’t even know where to start trying to figure that out!? 🤷🏼‍♂️😉

Personally, whether sports watch, dress watch or whatever - I always find myself looking at my watch when someone asks me the date!?

Not sure if anyone has mentioned Elliot Brown watches??

Another specialist watch maker here in the UK producing timepieces directly for specialist branches of the British military.

Rick solid (bomb proof - look it up😳) and reasonably priced.

The Holton Professional is the “real deal”.

Further to previous replies….CWC have made watches for all branches of the UK armed forces.
