IS THERE, OR WAS THERE EVER,  A TRUE 24 HOUR US MILSPEC MILITARY WATCH. THE FIRST TWO ITEMS BELOW ARE SIMPLY FACT SHEETS SHOWING THAT THERE NEVER WAS OR WERE A 24 HOURS MILITARY WATCH. NOT JUST A 24 HOUR ON DIAL BUT 24 HOURS  I PLACED THE ABOVE BELOW DIRECT FACTUAL US MIL SPEC MILITARY LIST OF WATCHES AND DATES. THERE ARE MIL-SPC PAGES AND NONE HAVE A 24 HOUR MOVEMENT. OF ANY BRAND LET ALONE BULOVA.

BEFORE READING BELOW VIEW THE ABOVE AND BELOW SHEET, THEN READ ON.WE HAVE ASKED ON OF THE INTERNETS MOST ACTIVE IN BULOVA 24 HOR WATCHES TO SEND US SONE FACTS BUT HE HADSNOT.

A NOTE, WHILE THERE IS NO MIL-SPEC FOR A TRUE 24 HOUR MIL WATCH, THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE REMOVING  BULOVA CIVILLIAN 1960 24 HR MOVEMENTS AND PLACING THEM IN BOLOVA A-17-A HACKING CASES AND THEN OFFERING THEM FOR 5 TIMES THE PRICE OF A BULOVA MILITARY.

I PLACED THESE MILITARY SPECIFICATION SHEETS BELOW TO DEMONSTRATE THE FACT THAT EVERY WATCH/STYLE PURCHASED BY THE US MILITARY HAD TO HAVE A SPEC SHEET. I HAVE YET TO FIND ONE, NOR A CONTRACT, NOR AN ID NUMBER. THESE OFFERS FOR BULOVA 24 HR WATCH MIL WATCHES DO NOT HAVE A "NUMBER" OR "CODE". INSTEAD, THE WATCHES I HAVE SEEN HAVE THE A-17 A-17A AND 3818 A. I SIMPLY AM CONFUSED. FOR THE MILITARY WOULD HAVE HAD A CODE AND A SPEC SHEET. YOU DO NOT CALL UP A GEBNERAL AND TELL HIM YOU HAVE MILITARY WATCHES FOR SALE

I HAVE THE US MILITARY MARINES AIRFORCE ARMY NAVY WATCH [,ILSPEC] SPECIFICATIONS BEFORE AND AFTER THIS RELEASE. BELOW ARE TWO OF THE TWENTY SHEETS JUST FOR ONE WATCH
