We’re big fans of military watches here at Worn & Wound. In a world where crazy complications and precious metal sport watches are a thing, if you’re a purist it becomes easy to appreciate these from-follows-function tool watches that were, simply put, impeccably made and reliable because they needed to be. Over the years, we’ve produced all sorts of articles that explored issued (and non-issued) watches worn by soldiers, and specifically those worn by American service members. If you haven’t had a chance to read those yet, you can find them below.
