    I have one just like yours, like all chronographs a great, complex movement.

    The back of mine has been scrubbed of all military markings, very professionly done. Does yours have the markings or has it been scrubbed too?

    Hey Ron the same has been done to mine I think when service members took them home with out asking they took the number off they were probably stolen some members wanted to take them home as a souvenir after the military?
