RARE Breitling/Chronosport UDT Type I Sea Quartz NAVY SEAL Watch
This is a super rare watch that was issued to the United States Navy Seals in the late 1970's -1980's and is not a watch you see anywhere. This watch features a beautiful PVD case and exquiste dial. The crystal was just polished but there a few small marks on it. Watch runs beautifully and is very rare to have in this condition. Crown screws down tight and bezel is working great.This watch just had a NOS Y2 900.911 ESA Swiss movement put into it so all functions are ready to go!!
I repeat: ALL ANALOG AND DIGITAL FUNCTIONS WORK and will last for years to come!!
From scubawatch.org:Issued to specialized US military units such as the Navy SEALs, UDTs (UnderwaterDemolition Teams) and US Army Special Forces, the Chronosport UDT is considered
by many to be the ultimate military watch of it's time. It's rugged design, accurate quartz
movement and pioneering use of a highly legible dial combining both analog and
digital displays made it a design sensation when it first appeared in the late 1970's.
(Underwater Demolition Team)
U.S. Navy UDTs were the precursor to the
modern Navy SEAL teams. Created in
WWII, UDT missions involved recon,
demolition, minesweeping, and clearing
beaches of obstacles prior to amphibious
landings. UDTs were also tasked with
NASA spacecraft and crew recovery. In
1983 existing UDTs were re-designated
"SEAL Teams" by the U.S. Navy.
