THEY HAD TO LAST 2 YEARS WITH NO REPAIRS]The MIL-W-46374 series of U. Military wrist watches began with specification publication dated 30 October 1964. Movement designations: ## j = number of jewels; QTZ = electronic quartz mvt, MEC =manual wind mechanical mvt.; HCK = hacking WESTCLOX SOLD AND GAVE AWAY A FEW HUNDRED WESTCLOX WATCHES TO US SPECIAL FORCES ADVISORS IN VIETNAM IN THE LATE 1950’S TO EARLY 1960’S. SO THEY DID NOT USE A MIL CASE, CASE BACK AND DIAL AND SIMPLY CHANGE THE MOVEMENT. MEANING THE BACK CASE WAS CARVED AND NOT STAMPED – ONE CAN TELL BECAUSE IT IS NO PERFECT.“THE HIL-W-3818A BRAND ???????
Dalzell’s skilled craftsmen also repair jewelry right in our store, and can restore your item to its original beauty.
THE US GOVERNMENT ACTUALLY REQUIRED DIALS TO BE EXACTLY ALIKE. 12 MANUFACTURERS BUREN, CYMA, ETERNA, GRANA, IWC , JLC, Lemania, LONGINES, OMEGA, RECORD, TIMOR and VERTEX] SELECTED TO FILL THE ORDERS. ALL WOULD HAVE SCREW DOWN CASE BACKS EXCEPT IWC, WHO UTILIZED A SNAP CASE BACK WITH A LEAD WASHER SEAL.
BENRUS PRODUCED THE FIRST VIETNAM WATCH AND IT WAS THE FIRST SINGLE CASE SYSTEM WITH TWO PART CRYSTAL LOCKING MIL-W-3818B KNOWN AS DTU-2AP. THE FACT IS MOVEMENTS OF SEPARATE BRANDS BEING EXACT IS SIMPLY UNHEARD OF IN MILITARY ISSUED WATCHES. THEN COMPARE AGAINST OTHER BRANDS, BUT VIEWING THE MOVEMENT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. WATCHES WERE TO HAVE BLACK RADIUM DIALS, 15 JEWEL MOVEMENTS, SUB SECONDS- PERSPEX SHATTER RESISTANT GLASS, STRONG CASES WITH EXTRA WATER PROOFING AND LARGE CROWNS.
THE FIRST CONTRACT WAS FOR 10,000 UNITS FOR THE MARINES. THIS WAS THE VERY FIRST TO USE THE ABOVE SPECS THEN A CONTRACT WAS AWARDED TO BENRUS. THUS THEY WERE NOT ISSUED BY THE COMPANIES UNDER ANY CONTRACT AND ARE NOT IN ANY US GOV CONTRACT SPECS. NEITHER ARE ACTUAL MOVEMENTS USED IN MILITARY WATCHES IN THE USA OR ANYWHERE ELSE THAT I CAN TELL . THEY PLACED A HAMILTON NAME WITH THE H LOGO — DUH– SCREAMS FAKE.
The MIL-W-46374B was required to have a 7 jewel manual wind mechanical movement, stainless steel case and acrylic crystal- though some plastic B series watches occasionally show up.
