Probably a little too much, but since it's a part of military history I thought I'd take a punt on it as an investment as well as it being a good watch. From what I read about it, it's a well regarded quartz movement.

I paid £550 for it, but I expect you can pick it up for less if you look around. From what Neil at Chronomaster says, a lot of them are dinged up (being military issue working watches).

Nice Seiko. And a good contrast to my retro chrono above.
