Footnotes

  • The Military Seamaster 300 was manufactured for the British Forces under strict guidelines given by the Ministry of Defence. The official document includes the specifications of the solid bars for the attachment of a NATO style canvas strap, the bezel with minute register for the full 60 seconds, Tritium luminous paint applied to the hands and dial symbolised by a T in a circle on the latter and oversize hands for clear legibility. Due to the fact that this watch was very much a tool watch many were discarded, destroyed or changed making complete examples quite sought after.
