    Watches in use by the US Navy SEALs

    Hi everyone, I'm currently doing a research on some of the watches the US Navy SEALs wear.

    Appart from the issued (although not anymore) G-Shock DW-6600, and the Suunto Vector, and Casio Protrek. Do you know any other model? (I need pictures )

    I have a huge collection and have identified most of the watches on them, but I need help with these ones:

    1.



    2.

    Looks like a Suunto, no idea about the exact model.

    3.


    4.

    DW-6600??

    5.


    6.


    7.


    8.

    Maybe a Protrek?

    9.


    Sorry for the quality of some pics.

    I don't know if this is the right place to post this or maybe I'm doing something wrong, please correct me if so

    Thank you very much.


    EDIT: More pictures added.

    I think photos of weapons are forbidden here.

    Yes, you're probably correct. The 1st watch on the 1st pic looks like a Core. Try the search engine on the suunto forum and you'll find a post from a fellow member, who says that were with a seal team and they were all wearing cores. About the rest of your pics good and old Gs(including a g8000 on desert tan- excellent btw), 1 timex and suunto.

    How about Luminox? I have a Colormark with a SEAL stamp on the back.

    Thanks a lot Dantas!! That's such a fast and accurate reply!
    Which picture is the one for the Timex? Do you know the exact model?

    Thanks O'Murphy. IMHO Luminox watches are kind of commercial, a SEAL or any SF operator would rather prefer a cheap, tough, and clear digi watch such as a G. But that's just my thought, I might be wrong. (I haven't seen any picture of a SEAL wearing a Luminox either)

    Good point Mike on Luminox. This is uncharted territory for me - just picked it up for looks and durability as an "everyday" piece.

    Threads like this are interesting to follow - thanks!

    If I had to guess I'd say the timex is a 25th anniversary Ironman with the negitive display(I have one and it looks alot like that). But I could be wrong.
