Military watches are popular because they're simple.
Most military models, particularly vintage ones, follow the same template. They need to be legible, dependable and comfortable to wear.
So you'll find military watches usually have black dials, no clutter and are small, discreet pieces.
A Brief History of the W10 Military Watch
In the late 1960s, the British Ministry of Defence issued a specification for a general service watch. It was the recognisable DNA of a military watch at the time. A simple black dial, Arabic numbers and a hand-winding movement.
Tens of thousands of W10 watches were issued to the RAF and army, with the watch eventually being replaced by a quartz model.
It's a notable watch, with a utilitarian appearance and featuring the crow's foot emblem on the dial. Although the watch hasn't been issued to the British Armed forces for decades, the design has remained popular.
And from all the world's military watches, there are some iconic designs. A great example is Rolex's Milsub. It's a classic watch that military watch collectors love.But it'll also cost you tens of thousands of pounds.
That's not realistic.
