Stocker & Yale Sandy P650Type 6 Military Watch This is a like-new old stock Sandy P650 Type 6 manufactured by a military watch contractor, Stocker and Yale. It is in great condition with a slight imperfection at the base between the 4 and 6. Please see photo below. If you would like additional close up photos please email me (Ebay will not support large photo/jpeg files). Some of you may have seen a civilian version of the watch made by Luminox with NAVY SEALS printed on the dial and sold with a cheap looking plastic band. Well, the particular watch for auction is the actual watch issued throughout the US Armed Forces. This watch is a rare watch, was manufactured in 1995, which is believed to be the first batch of watches delivered by Stocker and Yale. T was a secondary batch delivered in 1999. Although the watch is described as a navigator's watch, and hence would make it a USAF issue, it was mostly issued to members of the US Army and Navy, specifically the Rangers, SEALs, and Special Forces. This information comes from various ex-soldiers. The watch measures approximately 46mm lug to lug, 45mm in width, and 10mm in thickness. It takes a 22mm strap but the black nylon band that was issued with the watch is 20mm wide. The watch is water-resistant, shock-resistant, and is housed in a non-reflecting black nylon alloy case. Dial has 24 hour markings, H3 and radioative propeller markings. Both the hands, the hour indexes on the dial, and the zero position on the unidirectional bezel are equipped with self luminating tritium vials. A soldier participating in night missions would probably have to cover the watch since the brightness of the tritium vials is simply unparalleled, making him a vulnerable target. Interestingly, the caseback is made of stainless steel and mounted by four screws. The military specifications and serial numbers inscribed are as follows:
