I really like the second from the left. The one with the sub-dial at 9. This that an Officer with the auto movement? I want that one next!!
That one is called the Khaki Field Mechanical Officer. There are a few different models, but the ones with the small seconds hands (the one I have) are hand-winders, which I believe is a Unitas 6497 movement. It's a really clean and simple watch.

Here's the 'after' group shot:  (note: the one in the middle is really a dress watch, so I wouldn't have expected any lume, quite honestly)
