    Right on JE :)

    But if you ask me, TG stands for TygGrupp, and not TidsGivare. The latter is an urban myth

    I have been suspicious to the "tidgivare" but I have never been able to come up with anything better. My suspicion comes from "tidgivare" being listed under "M3445 kontrollur, sekundärur" in the lists. Even if the M-numbers came much later than the Tg 195 watch it would be strange if the military would change its registred use. I am with you here. I will look in to the TygGrupp as I have some other old material/lists that I have yet to investigate. Have you been looking into the TygGrupp yourself?

    Tyggrupp is a inventory name al items in a mob shed is named TG and a number so for ex flashlights have nr 12 the box is marked TG 12 and the Box TG 195 contains wristwatches acording to inventorylist.

    Spot on @Skrotis

    It's not any sexier than that. TygGrupp 195 as a description of the stock location for this equipment, issued wristwatches

    Does that mean there will be Scandinavian Blondes, hopefully scantily clad?

    If so, count me in!

    Your Swedish is not coming along as it should do. Our Scandinavian take over of OF has not reached as far as anticipated. The question was - blondiner - är det verkligen så att alla skandinaver är blonda? Blondes - is it truly so that all Scandinavians are blond? Not - are all blondes anorectic?

    You have to work harder. I will also intensify my efforts in converting you to the right faith and doctrine.

    If I buy a watch, do I get a plane too? That's the original packaging the watch came in right? ;)

    Welcome to Sweden! You are well trained. Viggens are distributed at border.

    Now start with this Swedish lesson:

    My 2008 S60 just keeps on truckin'.
    Not to speak ill of anyone, but I plan on upgrading while the styggpyggeno brothers are doing the assembly rather than the "Inscription" models.
    I have owned Volvos(one Saab) since 1980 and have walked away from head-ons and have spent hardly anything on maintenance.


    Love your wagon, Steve, not sure what I'm going to but this S60 has been perfect.

    I tried to warn everybody that this was coming ages ago!

    https://omegaforums.net/threads/date-at-6-2627.23842/#post-262577

    But did anybody listen then?

    Ohhh nooooo, too busy with Speedmaster analyses, so you only have yourselves to blame!

    I for one welcome our Scandinavian overlords... But then my other half is half Danish, so I'm already used such things.
