ADANAC Navigator 1988 – Produced for 2 Years only – 1986 & 1988

In the late eighties, both the USAF and Canadian Armed Force issued these tough-looking Adanac watches to their service members. Adanac is (Canada spelled backward) and was produced in the joint contract between Gallet and Marathon. The watch has an unusual 0-11 marked bidirectional bezel, which makes it look like a hybrid of diver’s and pilot’s watches. Both the United State air force and the Canadian Armed Forces issued the Adanac watches in the late 1980s. The Adanac possesses an asymmetrical case that possesses a screw-down crown, has fixed bars, and is water-resistant to 660 feet, which qualifies this watch as a military diver’s watch although it seems to have been issued more commonly to aircrews. The dial maintains 24-hour markings commonly found on many military watches. The hour and minute hands have applied tritium tritium material as do the hour indexes on the dial and the zero position on the bezel is also tritium coated. The Adanac uses a Swiss-made quartz movement and there is a separate latch (which you can open with a coin) for replacing batteries. 

Excellent example and functioning perfectly with beautiful patina. The 86 has a vintage 80s era NATO
