    I don't wear it too often, it was made to be "non-maintainable" (thrown away) once it stops working or breaks, as there's no way to open the back.
    Has a number '77' stamped on the case back so it appears to be made in 1991, modeled after the orig. Vietnam era military Timex also with a plastic case..
    I've seen these without a date code on the back.

    Great true O.D. color.

    Can I ask what's the use in having military time on a watch (other than 24 markers for a GMT complication)?

    I find that I recognize military time just fine. If not, the math is straightforward.

    If the reason is aesthetic that's fine. I find that I never use the military markers on my GSAR to tell military time. Am I missing something?
