And here's the caption --

    Not very often do you get to see these three guys together. Argentinian Air Force, Kenya Air Force and Israeli Defence Force. Three siglums (AAF, KAF, IDF) which represent some of the best issued units back in the late 70s and early 80s.

    Big and robust watches for the toughest environments. And each with their own peculiarities.

    The AAF it's in great shape and luckily came with one of the best provenance I have seen. This guy saw some great time in the Falklands. And the caseback it's a work of art.

    The KAF is the best known reference. The so called Shauntavia. Different than other issued units to the KAF it has the characteristic dial with its arabic numbers. This type of dial was only made to the KAF.

    And finally, the IDF. Not much more to say. PVD case, plain caseback with M engravings and no serial between the lugs. True unit not often seen around.

    Hard to believe these three guys have come together. Thanks to @on_the_dash for providing such great information!

Three great watches and a very informative posting!! Well done!!
