FS: NOS Adanac Gulf war military issued Navigator

Hi CT!

Up for sale is this NOS military issued Adanac Navigator in absolute pristine condition! A 30 year old watch worn but a few times. And with the original issued strap. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better example of this iconic watch.

In the late eighties, both the USAF and Canadian Armed Force had issued these tough looking Adanac watches to their service members. This exact one was issued by The US Airforce in 1988. It's an interesting watch because it has "Adanac" written on the dial but the case is signed "Gallet" - the famed swiss watchmaker. Its a quartz movement and has a screw-down crown, has fixed bars that takes a 20mm black nylon band, and is water resistant to 660 feet, which pretty much qualifies it as a military diver's watch.
Dial has the usual 24 hour markings found on many military watches. The hour and minute hands are applied with rectangular shaped tritium paint. The second hand is applied with tritium at its tip. Hour indexes on the dial and the zero position on the bezel are also tritium coated. The Adanac shown here has H3 and radioative propeller markings on the dial.

My price: 700 Euros. A steal for a 30 year old military issued watch in pristine condition
