The Authentic G.I. Watch

This is an exact reproduction of the rugged, dependable hand-wound watch that was supplied in the millions to U.S. Army troops starting in the 1960s. Still requiring manual winding, it is kept as an heirloom by servicemen and their families. This men's watch has been re-issued by Benrus, the original maker, and still conforms to the military's rigid specifications with a stainless-steel water-resistant case, 17-jewel Swiss mechanical movement, and luminous dial and hands. It also includes a unique "hack" feature--the ability to freeze its sweep second hand with a simple pull on the crown--which allowed soldiers to synchronize their watches. Face is 1 1/16" Diam. Watch strap is medium green "tropical weather" canvas. With canvas and leather storage pouch. Requires winding each day. Fits wrists from 7 1/2" to 9 1/2" in circumference.
