    Question Stunt Watch Mystery

    I've owned & maintained a "Stunt Watch" I bought for < $90 US sometime in the 90s. Google searches have returned nothing but some 90's adverts & a lot of dead links. I've never really given this watch much thought beyond ensuring a dead batt doesn't corrode in it. It's very small for a men's sport watch relative to today's fashions: dial 26 mm diam, case 37 mm excl screw-down, 2 stage crown. Black dial w/lumed chapter symbols, titanium case & bracelet, unidirectional (counter clockwise) titanium grey bezel w/lumed large dot @ 12:00 - bzl has chapter markers for
    1st 15 min (outer 3/4 black etched into grey titanium w/inner quarter white) inpointing equilateral triangles w/15, 30, & 45 Arabic numerals. Low MSRP belies apparent better than expected
    workmanship for mass-produced Japanese mvmt. Caseback reads "STUNT TITANIUM" w/#s
    8500 above S013, 100M WR, SHOCK RESISTANT, JAPAN MOVEMENT & TITANIUM complete circular engraving on caseback. Have original padded rectangular soft zippered black case w/ alt black leather strap & small link removal tool. No papers or receipt. Anyone know anything about this piece? Thanks in advance - emferret.

    Unfortunately, my 'Droid's camera is dead & the 'Droid is my only internet link. Kinda ironic for a retired network engineer, but I refuse to let any type of PCIn the house (easy, since I live alone). Since I've been able to hook the Android 3 via HDMI cable to my 40" Sony 1080p, I practically have a PC anyway...

    I just lost an hour's worth of pecking at this 3.875 inch keyboard w/a more detailed description when it just vanished...so forget it. If it was of any value &/or rarity, droves would know about it

    This is my second one that I got out of an Asian source about a year ago. My original one was sold by Eddie Bauer back in 1989-1990 time frame. From what I can gather, the watch was built by Sicura which was obtained by Breitling, and was sold under the Breitling name as the Military model. http://www.breitlingsource.com/watch_details/Unclassified_120.html

    I
    am looking for on of the US model, as it did not have the funky red lines in it.

    My dad bought one in the late 80s, he still wears it occasionally. I recently found another one for myself, group picture of father and son:

    I bought one around 1993 from Argos in th UK and loved it! I tested it to the limited of indestructiblity as a teenager, hitting it with hammers etc until around 1995 when it was finally smashed on shoreline rocks by a friend who took the challenge too seriously! Would love to get hold of another one now if anyone knows where?

    I also have a Stunt watch from the 80's in my collection.
    Story I got was it was supposed to compete with Tag H but never got off the ground financially.
    Anyone else have a background story?
    I have attached 2 photos - front and back.
    The band is stainless brushed and chrome link.
    Case is 37mm and 40mm with crown.
    Weighs 178grams which for the 80's is quite hefty!
    It is a diver's with with rotating bezel.
    I believe it is titanium body, but not sure .
    Maybe someone can tell me.
    It is in very good condition and wear is age appropriate.
    The watch could use a polishing on back and glass.
    Anyone else want to sharethier 'Stunt' watch models.

    Thanks for the info!
    I thought as much and I appreciate the confirmation.
    I was suspicious that there was no 'marking' other than the watch body being titanium in color.
