Thanks Kyle. Im a sucker for the Nylon straps w/ compasses.
Hey I have a question. Are all the 7005 8030s marked on the dial at the "6" 8050 (R)?
Sounds like someone swapped a 8050 caseback on to a 8030 watch.Thanks. So I have two 7005s that are dial marked 8050, one back is marked 8050 the other 8030. The 8030 has a second hand with a "block" on the tip that has lume. Is that common?
If you are referring to the fact that a White Face/Dial may give your position away, perhaps sitting on an ambush and it being seen, what about the fact that ALL these watches are shiny chromed/plated/Stainless watch bodies? That alone would be far more reflective and dangerous than ANY white face/dial would ever be. Sleeves were worn down, gloves worn pulled up, chances are the watch was never "out there" to be seen anyway. So I Respectfully disagree. IMHO of course.As Upton Sinclair wrote “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it."
The Idea that a white dress watch would have ever been an issued item is just nuts.

I don't know if the Vietnamese in this unit are VC Defectors, Republic of Vietnam Regional or Popular Forces, Hmong, or Montagnard. My understanding is MACV SOG preferred to recruit among the Hmong and Montagnard who had a fierce reputation for loyalty.Are the Vietnamese in the picture Chieu Hoi? They aren't rangers, coz rangers wore tiger cammies, and they aren't RuffPuffs coz the RF/PFs wore scarves. I don't know if the Chieu Hoi (the Kit Carsons) wore the same uniforms. The Nung and the Yards wore different uniforms I believe .
