British Navy sailor jailed for stealing Special Forces dive watches

Watches with real military heritage carry a special allure to them – something that has been recognised both by enthusiasts and collectors. There’s a reassuring authenticity about a tool watch designed for a specific purpose (look at the Marine Nationale’s input into the design of the Tudor FXD, for example), or a watch built to withstand the rigours of active employment.

As a result, these watches can garner significant demand, even for humbler quartz pieces by the likes of CWC, a brand that has produced watches for the British military for decades. ... e-watches/

Sounds like thebwork of DirtBag!
Apparently an evil genieus DirtBag - got caught by selling them on eBay when some potential buyers checked the listing for the authenticity of the watches. What rotten luck; who could have seen that coming?
