How do you know to whom yours belonged? Unbroken provenance or did you find some way to reach it through the stock number? I'm curious if there's a way I can find out more of the history of mine.

Thank you. Nope. Amongst the official government issued military watches, this DTU-2A/P was the first to be issued per the new MIL-W-3818B standard as a precursor to the GG-W-113 and evolution of the A-11. It was purchased directly from the widow of the original owner, thus my knowing its provenance.
