Vintage Field Watch 1st Edition

from 450.00

We are proud to offer our historical first edition hand-built mechanical timepiece. The inspiration for the design comes from wristwatches worn by World War II infantrymen.  It is simple, clean but elegant in design, reminiscent of Elgin, Waltham, and Hamilton military watches produced in 1940s.  The centerpiece of the wristwatch is a large black dial featuring clear markings and military style hour and minute hands.  The heart of the watch is a beautiful mechanical movement, built with over 100 parts.  The movement is decorated with blued screws and jewels and is visible through a see-thru case-back.  Sapphire crystals are used on the front and back of the case for strength and durability.  The dial numerals and watch hands are painted with luminescent Super-Luminova paint for visibility and legibility in the dark.  Each timepiece comes with two straps: vintage style leather band for formal occasions and a Cordura strap for field wear.
