Military style watches have been present throughout the ages. Much of their styling is retrospective in appearance with designs borrowed from watches that were actually worn by infantry men during generations of military warfare.
Today military watches have considerable worldwide appeal as demand for ornate and bygone styling continues to increase.
These types of watches perfectly capture and combine historic and heartfelt designs and bring them back to the consumer with a modern twist.
However, the military watches of today are not to be confused with their generation’s old contemporaries.
Military watches of this age have evolved in the same vein as the armies that have helped to cement their longstanding heritage. They are refined, sophisticated and ultra modern in their inner workings.
Seiko military watches are the perfect example of currently available military watches that have not forgotten their style heritage. Much of this is reflected in their lightweight design, fabric strap and the bushed metal appearance of the watch case.
Currently Seiko have mass produced these models with a green and black fabric strap affording the consumer excellent choice.
However, these watches are not without modern day innovation as they boast a lumibrite dial, sapphire crystal glass, date and a complex chronograph timing mechanism along with considerable water resistance.
Citizen watches have also designed several impressive military watches that incorporate a nice blend of the features above in collaboration with their award winning Eco-Drive movement.
These are perfectly contrasted with an old fashioned military exterior and a modern day solar powered movement within.
Pulsar military are also a popular seller with much of the design and watch technology borrowed from their sister company Seiko. These watches are currently available with black, green and green fabric straps.
The Pulsar military range exudes both quality and appeal and can be purchased for a truly remarkable low price.
Rotary military watches are also very desirable as they offer a Swiss precision movement, unrivalled build quality and a classical military design that does not step far away from the military heritage.
Rotary have also introduced their ‘Help for Heroes’ military watches UK model. This watch is designed to very closely resemble the watch worn by the British Army during the First World War.
We also have Victorinox Swiss Army military watches whom have based much of their current watch collection upon old and modern day military styling. Victorinox is also famous for being the company that has been commissioned by the Swiss Army to make the infamous Swiss Army Knife.
Victorinox military watches are hugely coveted by many. This is again largely due to their Swiss precision movement and impeccable build quality.
Today Victorinox Swiss Army military watches can be bought in many variations and styles with both complex mechanical and quartz movements. With choices such as these a military watch really is the model of choice no matter the consumer.
