Offering an almost New Old Stock Stocker & Yale Sandy 590 Flag dial watch that I picked up  in the late 90's. I bought 3 or 4 as they weren't very popular at the time. Came without a band or battery. Still have one that I wear pretty often. Found this one in one of my watch boxes, still without strap or battery. Also missing the battery cover. Took several months, but I finally found the battery cover in another box when I was looking for an original Seiko 6105 dial & movement. New battery was installed a couple of weeks ago, been running & keeping good Quartz time since. Date works & changes like it should. I installed a NOS black period correct US Military issue strap that might have been issued with it.
Only 2 flaws I noticed. Small scratch on crystal @ 7, only noticeable in certain light. Still very presentable. Small chunk out of the battery cover. When worn, it is unseen, but if you take it off to show the US Military Issue markings, it will be seen.
I have always heard these were made exclusively for one of the US Military Academies. Seemed logical to me. Stocker & Yale had a US Government Military Contract for watches from the early 1980's thru sometime in the 1990's.

Just a little Trivia:
Chuck Norris wore a Stocker & Yale Sandy watch in several of his movies. Not sure which ones, since I watch them all & more than once !


I quote from one of the worlds leading experts on US Issued Military Watches:
"The SandY with Flag Dial was routinely issued to army personnel, and I have seen many service men and women wearing it."
His contact information on request.

After 9-11 the Flag dialed Sandy 590 became a very hot commodity , expensive & hard to find.
I still occasionally wear mine very proudly.
