The history of this watch offers a unique opportunity for Explorer collectors. It was acquired from a US soldier who served in Vietnam. Look closely to notice the matte finish of the case. During the war, the original owner applied an anti-reflective coating to the case, presumably to reduce his visibility. The color difference is quite subtle, but can be seen clearly between the case lugs, where the serial number was covered prior to the application. Additionally, the gilt dial is beginning to turn tropical brown, which augments the authentic vintage look. 36mm
