This is an authentic Swiss-made SWISS RAID Commando Special Forces Quartz Watch.
I described this watch as having 99% all-original parts though the band & clasp are new because in the case of military bands, the buckle always comes with the band. Therefore, we consider the band & buckle as 1 unit/part.
This watch keeps good time & is in good working condition! Add this to your collection of vintage quality timepieces!

We try our best to describe watches as accurately as we can that's why we present them visually & literally. In case we missed a few points, you are welcome to ask questions.
This watch was designed & manufactured exclusively for the competitors, known as "Raiders", of the prestigious Swiss Raid Commando. Today, watchmaker WENGER continues a SWISS RAID COMMANDO line of its own BUT!!! We are offering, for sale, the original & exclusive SWISS RAID COMMANDO Watch!
The Swiss Raid Commando was one of the most enduring & most important military competitions worldwide. It was addressed to very well trained, armed force personnel, who were willing to compete in a "commando" type exercise.
The first SRC was held in 1986, implemented by the Neuchatel officers’ society. The 18th edition took place in 2009. During each edition, an average of 650 soldiers compete, most of who come from elite troops from 15 different nations.
