The Great War Officer's Trench Watch

Was $149.95 NOW $99.95

This is the wristwatch inspired by the vintage designs of timepieces worn 100 years ago in the trenches of World War I. Fumbling for a traditional pocket watch while on the attack proved impractical, so pocket watches eventually ended up on the wrist. This modern homage celebrates those early watches with a slim profile, an open classic dial with even numbers to mark the hours, and practical hour/minute hands that sweep an ivory face. A 60-second subdial at the 6 o’clock position evokes the precisely timed coordination required for a successful advance after an artillery bombardment. The military-inspired 3/4"-wide vegetable-tanned Italian leatherástrap secures with two metal keepers that keep the extra length—designed for wear over uniforms (or modern garments)—organized and tidy. Accurate Miyota quartz movement provides reliable time-keeping. The face is protected by a scratch-resistant mineral crystal while the inner workings are kept by a splash-resistant, ion-plated brass case and stainless steel case back. Fits wrists 5"-8 1/2" in circumference. Case with crown 1.65" diam. x .38" thick. (3 oz.)
