We discovered during a stock check that we had 12 of these watches in storage at our US fulfilment centre which arrived with various other items but were missed and not registered on the system at the time of delivery, the battery life of the watches is normally three years (sometimes a bit more) so this means the battery would need replacing. Having said that replacing the battery is a simple task and on average costs $7 or to have it done professionally, it's easy enough to do it yourself if you know the procedure see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09Vm-QdoruA these watches are all brand-new and in perfect condition still with the plastic protectors on the face and caseback because they were in a sealed box as received from the factory.
.
They are reduced to under half price because it simply isn't practical for them to be returned back to one of our offices for the batteries to be changed or to be sent to the factory because by the time we have factored in the shipping costs back and forth it would not be worthwhile. As a result, they are a bargain at over 50% off.

Our Military Industries Vietnam Watches are virtually identical in appearance to the watches used by American troops in the Vietnam war during the 1960s and 70s, we produce two variants one covert black and the original in olive drab. Like the original watches, these watches have no manufacturer branding on the face and are what is termed by the military as "sterile".

You can see original Vietnam watches here at this link where there are various images and details. The actual US Military Issue models were made of plastic because they were deemed disposable but our watches are all-metal construction which means that although the watch looks extremely close to the originals visually it is vastly superior in both durability and general quality of manufacture.
