Please post your own personal watches for sale on the PX (not here.) Links to watches for sale are permissable as long as they are for discussion purposes. Links to fake and counterfeit watch sites are prohibited. While not mandatory, images of guns, knives, and Ninja spikes in conjunction with your watches are highly encouraged.

ACU is the designation for the Army Combat Uniform. One of the colors in the pattern is a specific shade of gray, hence the term 'ACU Gray'.

That's a good one that's made the rounds. If I'm not mistaken, that's the best anyone has gotten this pattern to blend in to any kind of 'foliage'.

ACU Grey doesn't impress me. I'd really appreciate and ACU Sage nylon strap.
