    and these guys have such high opinion of their aircraft that they spec out a Seamaster? Figure on a dunking do they? Not encouraging.

    I think I'll hold out for someone that specs a Speedmaster..... at least we know they think they'll be going fast instead of swimming.

    They're only Seamasters in name really, notice the lack of a bezel and Railmaster style case instead

    I'd rather have a Seamaster on my wrist if I were in the need to bail out of a plane into the sea... won't be measuring how fast I fall if I were an ejecting fighter pilot of the day :p

    The "dunking" part probably accounts for the patina on these watches.

    The Peruvian Air Force is FAP, what with them stubbornly insisting on using a foreign language :rolleyes: (Fuerza Aérea del Perú)

    Just looking closely at the one on the left, is that a sandwich dial?

    The lume is in wells recessed in the dial while the numbers and letters are painted on.

    I am glad I add IIRC in my (embarassing...) statement. Otherwise I might have to put blame on Google :p

    Put 'FAP' in Google, and it ain't the Peruvian Air Force that comes up!:D
