In the early 1970s, while the British were issuing their now-famous, essentially off-the-shelf Swiss military dive watches, American forces wrote MIL-W-50717, a military specification that outlined all the design details they were looking for in a diving watch.

“Your heart was warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
