Vintage and Rare WW2 USN BUSHIPS Military Issue Hamilton Canteen Diver

H amilton USN BuShips canteen watches were issued to members of the Naval Combat Demolition Units (NCDU) underwater demolition teams (UDT), who were responsible for clearing harbours and obstructions. Many of these teams were engaged in clearing harbors and obstructions during war. With its service number stamped on the case back, the Hamilton canteen has a screw-down watertight outer crown. Canteen watches are unusual in how they protect themselves from water via a thin metal rim fitted on the crystal which is soldered to the case and attached to the canteen (named for its resemblance to the design of water canteens) crown cap. The case measures 31.26mm x 38.8mm and comes with Clockwork Synergy Genuine leather Strap. The watch comes with a 987S movement with hacking, and 17 jewels. This rare beauty shows normal wear and patina for a watch of its age and has some areas on the case where the chrome is wearing threw and slight scratches on the crystal but, is in fairly good overall condition for an Military issued watch. The watch is running strong and keeps fairly accurate time, though the service history is unknown. If you have any questions feel free to message me. These BuShip canteens dont come up very often and are becoming increasingly harder to find, so snatch this one up while you still can.
