This Benrus DTU-2A/P was originally owned and worn by a USAF (FAC) Forward Air Controller while serving his country in Vietnam. It is dated Oct. of 1964 and pictured on a NOS Mil-Spec OD nylon single pass RAF strap dated May of 1965.

A stunner! That's a gg-w-113 then? My Hamilton from '69 that I found in a bin at a flea market is out being serviced. I bought 2 reproduction straps in black and olive drab on Amazon from Debeer, which is the only company I could find that sold a proper type II strap (not a NATO) in 18mm with the PVD coated buckle the spec defines.
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.

Starting off with some 1950's Swiss. Not easy to pick up the texture dial in a pic. May have to switch to something larger later though.

The bezel reminds me of the 7002-7020.
Another eye candy, Neil.

It's the classic creamy white SARB035 today.

The Aqualand King is in the building, nice watch sir.

Today I'm taking a simple watch, its the third one on today, once I remembered where I may end up, and didn't want to damage anything too precious.
Mark Sir Thank You And Nice Seiko 5 That has the Looks Of The Marathons👏👍⌚
