    SBS CWC.

    Very interesting. Not even a shot of the case back. And the price, dear me.

    I think we can all do that damage to a watch.

    Someone will believe it was used in action by the SBS it could just be a silver mans or anything anyway only a fool will buy it.

    I noticed that. I'm not sure how they can tell the damage was done on "active service".

    The damage is odd as well, how do those points get so badly marked and nowhere else seems damaged? Even the bezel seems untouched.

    Hooky ad. In my eyes - watch looks as though it has been deliberately damaged to show ‘active service’ Lol.

    It’s been on eBay for a while. Over priced and the ‘damage’ looks very suspicious to me.

    Hmmm. Not sure Chris. Could be from bullet deflection, perhaps a sniper targetting the wearers w*****g hand . . .

    Damaged on active service ??? my a**e. Looks like a screwdrivers deliberately scratched each lug and each side of the crown guards.. too symetrical.

    The only active service it’s seen is down the NAAFI at tea break.

    Definitely added damage!!

    Here is mine from 2001, and this has been well used by the guy it was issued to and also by me.

    Maybe - or it could have been in a bar. The only occasion I've knowingly met members of the SBS, they were drinking Baileys.



    Baileys!

    "Special Baileys Service" is now indelibly imprinted in my brain.
