"The Grunt" US Vietnam War Pattern Military Service Watch

These are fantastic reproductions of the 1966 Benrus DTU-2A/P. It was among the first to be issued under the new MIL-W-3818B standard the US government called for. They asked for "an accurate, disposable, and non-maintainable watch, in either plastic or metal, to be issued to infantry and other ground troops during the Vietnam War".

Each watch features:

  • A black dial with white luminous numerals
  • Battery-powered Quartz movement
  • An inner track for 24-hour readings.
  • A 25cm olive green wrist strap, which is held in place by spring bars
  • The watch face encased in a burnished grey metal housing
  • A snap-off back casing
  • It measures 32mm across, not including the crown
  • The reverse is stamped with a serial number as well as the date, ‘AUG 1966’
  • A flat brown presentation box with silver text
  • Each watch has a maximum wrist size of 23cm

These reproduction US Service watches would make a great addition to your Vietnam impression or to use as an everyday watch.

Please note: To see the full effect of the luminous numerals, the watch will need to be exposed to light to effectively 'charge' this feature.
