Who Can Wear What? Watch Choice in the Military

The pic of the Nomex flying gloves reminds me once again with winter here ... I have my old deerskin winter flying gloves, they’re wonderfully soft and pliant. But years ago I discarded the nylon liners (the wool cuffs were falling apart). I keep trying to buy civilian equivalents of those liners, but no luck. Seems I need to start trawling military surplus or aftermarket sites for those liners. Any suggestions would be welcome. :}

My old brown deer skin flight gloves are long gone but I still have the Nomex lining that I still use on the Bell 206. We were also issued a fire resistant knitted liner for winter use. Hated those. Like performing heart surgery with boxing gloves.

When I was in the military over 20 years ago some people were issued with CWC but it was very rare and even then I recall that a lot of people bought G shock interestingly I came across something awhile back which tends to agree with what someone said above in relation to the RAF aircrew watches I can't figure out how to attach a document here so have added in the link it relates to what the British military are currently buying although the quantities don't make for exciting reading. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bzqjx2t3PlpWT2Fub1N5cFpCTUE/view?usp=sharing
