So I came across this page linked from another forum on WUS. There's a little blurb on the webpage stating that Rolexes were issued to Navy SEALs for some amount of time, until about 1981. Then the writer goes on to say that g-shocks were issued to SEALs instead. Trouble is, the writeup makes it sound like this occurred in 1981, while we know of course that g-shocks did not become available until 1983.... Draw your own conclusions.
