I like those early wrist watches. You can still see how they evolved from pocket watches by their shape. I say, Early, good taste there. I've drooled over trench watches in the past, especially the ones with fancy metal guards that only have holes to make the digits visible. Good luck with getting what you like!

Bump.

I've been looking at some more Eaglemoss stuff, they're generally cheap tat but some are quite pretty. They're so cheap on eBay now it's hardly worth getting a new battery when you can just buy another new one. They're great beater watches if you want something for day to day use. I've recently got the RAF 1940 and 2 British soldier series.

I would like to get a CWC G10 or diver's watch one day as they seem to be excellent field watches, the Hamilton Khaki field looks cool too.





Does the US military still do standard issue watches?

The ones with the leather straps don't look bad, I've been looking for something along those lines for a bit now, but I want my watch to show the date as well ...
