Default Military watches

Iíve been into watches for 20+ years now and never realized how cool military watches were. Very simplistic yet they are mostly very robust and get the job done. Granted - most of the US military at least wears GShocks, I still love old school analog watches. I like looking at a watch and ďseeingĒ the time instead of ďreadingĒ it if that makes any sense.


Some fantastic military watches / brands -

Marathon ( have both the JSAR and GSAR currently )

Timex

Casio

Hamilton

Luminox ( although probably more marketing than anything else )

Traser

Omega

Sunnto


Iím sure there are many others Iím forgetting but thatís a brief list I could come up with.

I’ve always thought those Bell and Howell watches had a quirky appeal, or else they appeal to the quirky, maybe.
