The 1980s were a time of active American military intervention around the world. A notable military action was the Middle East Involvement in support of Egypt & Israel, which further developed into The Iran Hostage Crisis.

The Iran Hostage Crisis was the seizure of the American Embassy in the Iranian capital of Tehran. It ended on January 20, 1981, the month & year when this HAMILTON Military Watch had been issued. The conclusion of the crisis was Jimmy Carter's final mission as 39th President of the United States.

EXTERNAL/INTERNAL CONDITION: This watch is in *NEAR MINT condition (93-97%): Showing very light signs of wear. Very faint scratches on the case, bezel, bracelet or buckle are visible to the naked eye. It is working perfectly, keeping good time & needs nothing.

*condition descriptives mainly based on the Timezone Grading System
