Totally agree. Something I would have bid on if I knew about it as well.

It is a fine piece of art/history that leaves me with mixed emotions and a feeling of confusion... I can imagine how this engraving went down.

He was probably really "special" if you know what I mean. His mates convinced him everyone scribbles their serial on watch cases in case the enemies get ya and you should totally do it to your brand new Rolex.

"No no no mate one side won't do it... it has to be both or the SGTMAJ will beast you... regulations init. Have to serialize all your gear.

Our generation didn't have the opportunity to purchase Rolex at the PX best I could do was a SUUNTO from the Danish PX. I wish I had brought my 16610 or 16710 with me (both long gone anyway) but I wore a Breitling Emergency on a NATO strap for both my deployments that I still enjoy from time to time.

As far back as 1965 Australia had an advisory mission in Vietnam. I was recovering in the US Army field hospital located in Nha Trang, in January 1965. In my ward was an Australian army sergeant, likewise recovering. The Kiwis were also represented by a New Zealand army sergeant. He was Maori and interesting to talk to. Most Americans are unaware of the participation by those two countries.
