  1. Can anyone help me with my search for a 1970's British Military issue Rolex Submariner wristwatch? They were used by RN and RM, SBS and some special units.

    I am a Rolex collector and will pay a good price for one in any condition working or not.

  3. I served a s a Dusty in the 70s, and I can't say I ever saw one of those as a stores item, I remember Pilot's watches though.
    Even then, they would only have been issued on loan - you know what pusser is about accounting for everything ..!!
  4. Got a lovley one from a nice chap in Aruba last month. Only cost me 60 quid!

  7. There's an up and coming market for fakes /copies at the moment and they are almost undetectable from the real thing. You even get the box etc etc.

    The 1970 Rolex was issued to ships Diving team stores . It was a standard submariner type and I don't think it had the day date function . The s/s strap was removed and it was used with the Naval stores Nato wrist watch strap - grey coloured nylon with the two loops -un breakable supposedly.
    Never used for diving-- they were too expensive!!
  8. Did it go 'ping!' when it went beneath the drink? Just so you could detect it...
