Title: Evaluation report of some diver's watches by US Navy experimental diving unit

Found on vasts of internet. Don't remember where exactly. Don't have a link. So attaching here. Hope it is not against the rules.
I think it could be interesting for diver watch enthusiasts.
They were testing some diver's watches for military (in 1950th). Including Bulova, Blancpain, Enicar, Rolex.
Zodiac mentioned as well (see a table from the end of the document).

Yes, I have seen that long ago. As it is so old and a government doc I see no reason to remove it. The biggest problem back then was that if is was not made in the USA it could not make the "standard issue" list.

Could the OP message me as I can't download that pdf from the post. Might need it sent by email?

Cheers

Not sure what is going on with the servers today but you can right click on it and then open it in a new tab or window and just let it run. It will eventually complete for you.
