Hi to all,
What type of wrist watches are usually issued to the aviation service men / woman in the US Air Force?
Do the US Air Force pilots have certified US military issued wrist watches? If so, what types are there?

When I was flying the KC-135 (1970s through the 1990s) were were issued the same watch that was used as far back as WWII. It had a 12 hour and 24 hour face on it, was anolog, and you could stop the second hand when we got out "time hack". It had a black face and the hands and numbers were painted with glow in the dark paint, subdued case (not shiny), and a olive drab cloth wrist band.
