    One of the nicest watches Iíve ever held

    This Tudor sub was issued to my buddy in the Navy. He recently had it serviced, but otherwise just wears and loves it.
    He saved it one day while walking thru supply, the sailor in the unit was smashing a large amount of them with a hammer as they had been replaced by G Shocks. My friend asked him if he could have one and he handed one over.

    The "smashing with a hammer" part makes me feel sad

    The smashing with a hammer part is tough to think about

    I wonder what the odds are of seeing something like this in an army/navy surplus store. Genuine question because I have 0 idea how those stores work

    Makes you wonder how many other items (not just watches) throughout history have been deliberately destroyed or simply discarded that in todays world we would cherish.
    Love this type of story tho,

    I've seen video of guys pushing brand new Jeeps off the side of a Navy ship after WWII ended. I guess it was cheaper than bringing them all the way home and they just had no use for them all after the war ended. I'd love to have one of those.
