Re: -= WRUW 22 Jan 18 =-

I think I'll keep this on for a while to check the timing - BTW, crazy good lume for a watch this old.

Re: WRUW 12 Jan 18

The third (of a possible four?) Crown Dial UDT II in my collection. The "PVD" coated case with a 12/24 dial and compass rose bezel is generally referred to as a IIC. The case has a small dink on left side and a fair amount of loss of the coating, indicating regular wear at some point in its life. Th...

Re: WRUW 11 Jan 18

Another stainless Crown Dial, this one with the more typical black count up bezel insert. Also in much better cosmetic shape than the other. ps - I just noticed the digital time was off, strange. :shrug: Watch is happy now. https://photos.smugmug.com/Public-photos/Postings/i-fZ8L27p/0/c64b3f18/XL/IM...

Re: WRUW 10 Jan 18

One of three "Crown Dial" UDT's in my collection. Jordan's former King Hussein obtained a fair number of Type II's in various configurations, all with a dial specifically designed for him that he gave away as gifts to "dignitaries". I'll leave you all to decide what level of "dignitary" you are if y...

Re: WRUW +++ 12 21 17 +++ Thursday

The much more common gold dial on the Champagne UDT II, with the "Sea Quartz" label over the LCD display. This one also has a near perfect condition case.

Re: WRUW 20 Dec 17

Both Type I and Type II UDTs had a "Champagne" model, marketed as a tool watch suitable for dress as well. The black dial (as below) was pretty much standard on the Type I's but is rare (to my knowledge) on the Type II's. The gold tone plating used on these models is something less that top of the l...

Re: WRUW - Tuesday 19 Dec '17 -

Relatively rare dial bezel combination with a polished case. It could be my tired eyes, but this particular dial seems to be taking on a tropical fade.

Re: WRUW 15 Dec 17

Here we have a SS variant with a polished case, Type IIB "UDT" dial, and a traditional dive bezel insert. Overall excellent condition post service.

Re: WRUW 14 Dec 17

Another SS cased variant. This one with a polished case, "sea quartz" Type I dial and count down bezel. The count down bezel appears to have been the standard for most of the SS models.

Non coated, Type I dial with "UDT" above the LCD display rather than "Sea Quartz". Count down bezel.

Re: WRUW 12 - 12 - 17

My second best Type IIC and the only true "double" in the collection (at present ;-). Post service it is in excellent condition with just a little wabi to the PVD on the case edges, crown and pushers.

Re: WRUW = Friday 8th Dec '17 =

A near perfect example of a Type IIC UDT (12/24 hour dial and compass rose bezel). This is the only version of which I have 2 pieces, so if anyone is interested ;) .

Re: WRUW 07 December 2017

A pristine Type IIB with a countdown dive bezel. Just a hint of fading to the bezel insert and the slightest of slight wabi to the PVD at the sharp edges

Re: WRUW 6-DEC-2017

The bell of the ball. Virtually NOS Type IIA. This was my 50th b-day present to myself, my second UDT, and the one that signaled my subsequent addiction. The first one I literally wore to pieces and this was to be its replacement. Hah! Just back from service and only worn when I know I can be very c...
