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

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...
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...
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...

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.
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...
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.
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.

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 .
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...
Just got the last group back from service. Ready for rotation . . . https://photos.smugmug.com/Public-photos/Postings/i-ZWtCGzz/0/9fe5dffe/XL/IMG_0180-XL.jpg That looks great on that NATO [emoji122] the matching hardware really puts it over the top.
