Comments about G.I. TYPE VIETNAM WIND UP WATCH:

Yep, probably off by a minute or two a day just like my issue watch. Synchronizing your watch with others was important because they ALL lost or gained time. This watch was originally designed to be disposable so don't expect a Rolex. The lens is optical plastic, like mine, and will scuff and scratch under active use.

I guarantee it will start many good conversations.

My final choice was between this and a used version from the Vietnam era original issue for about 10 dollars. I finally chose this watch based on its looks and what I read. [...]
