    I bought it for 46$, he says it will have a miyota movement.
    Does anyone have any experience with this watch?

    Thanks

    I have no experience on this specific watch but I do however owned a few with the Citizen miyota movement. They're okay, timekeeping wise.
    I doubt this watch is military issue though.

    Do you think it's a case back from a different watch? Why would it have the military markings on the back?
    I've owned an an H3 Tritium, army issue and it has the same on the back but a few more numbers.
    Maybe it is a replica but I guess it can't be beat for 46$.

    As for the Miyota movement, I've got a Tempo with the OS10 and it has been great since I bought it in 2001.

    It looks way too new to be an actual military issue watch. If watches of that style were issued, they would have been issued several decades ago, as that's when the style began. It's also way too inexpensive to be a new-old-stock mil watch. Miyota mov'ts are durable, I'm assuming your watch is automatic, 30 atm water resistance (I don't think it's rated for swimming or showering), and I guess putting it on a NATO strap kept the price down. And they can write whatever they want on a caseback. Just wear it, and enjoy it, maybe get a few more straps/NATO ones, etc and change them out a lot. And you got a nice looking case with it.

    It's not mil, wear it and enjoy it, I don't think it's a bad piece at all.
