Default Stocker&Yale LCD military watch

Just completed my collection of SandY watches from model 184 thru 660.



I think it complies with MIL-W-87967, Lysander will know for sure. I thought these watches were plastic but the body is actually anodized aluminum. Type III refers to pilot/navigator or "shallow diver"! Class A refers to a permanent back-light. Still plenty of contrast in the LCD but the tritium back-light is almost dead after about 30 years. Not what you'd call a "sterile" face, eh? Almost as bad as Casio! (ducks).

The axial brush finish on the back makes it hard to photograph the back markings, this is the best out of 1/2 dozen tries:



Curiously, the NSN is the same as that for a Benrus type I per MIL-W-50717. Odd, that. The last number is a U.S. Navy Contract reference, presumably awarded to Stocker&Yale in 1981.

I had SandY leather strap which looks good on this watch IMHO, although the spec calls for a MIL-S-46383 strap.



Need to sell some more quartz, or go broke buying bloody batteries ;-)

Default Thanks!

That clears up some questions I had on the last (and only) batch of contract information I have on NIIN 00-477-4210.

Contract # N00104-84-WZP14 issued April 1984 for 9 watches @ 103.37 each CAGE 90640 (Stocker and Yale). Total contact value $930.33

Contract #N00104-81-CK360 issued January 1981 for 1192 watches @102.87 each CAGE 90640 (Stocker and Yale). Total contract value $122,621.04

They are listed as suitable substitutes for part numbers X7950 and X7953 (MIL-W-50717, Type I, Class A).

I wondered why MIL-W-87967 was listed as a part number under that NIIN...

Obviously, some idiot at NAVICP, Mechanicsburg, PA (which is the contract originator) didn't see the requirement in MIL-W-50717 for 1200 feet water resistance. Unfortunately, I have seen it happen before.

Is yours a Type III also?

There are three types:

Features of the Type I wristwatch are as follows:
a. Twenty-fair hour general purpose watch
b. Single time zone (24 hour) four position display [minimum, obviously]
c. Stopwatch (1 hour minimum)
d. Water resistant (3 atmospheres/45 psi)
e. Shock resistant

Type I Classes
Class A: Self-luminous lighting
Class B: Incandescent lighting

Features of the Type II wristwatch are as follows:
a. Divers watch
b. Single time zone (24 hours) six position display with optional 12-hour time mode
c. Autoranging stopwatch (3 hour minimum)
d. Waterproof (5 atmospheres/75 psi)
e. Self-luminous lighting
f. Shock resistant

Features of the Type III wristwatch are as follows:
a. Aircrew, navigators and shallow water divers watch
b. Single time zone (24 hour) six position display with optional 12-hour time mode
c. Continuous seconds readout
d. Stopwatch (1 hour minimum)
e. Water resistant (3 atmospheres/45 psi)
f. Shock resistant

Classes for the Type III
Class A: Self-luminous lighting
Class B: Incandescent lighting

It would seem, in the interest of economy, SandY used the same module in the Type I, Class A and III Class A. Possibly even common to the Type II if your stopwatch times beyond 1 hour...

Somewhere around here, I have a number of NOS cases. They are exceptionally easy to remove the module and to drop in the module only. Might be able to find them if anyone is interested.
