Collection: Field Watches

Field watches originated from watches that were issued to serving soldiers. As a result they needed to be tough, accurate and legible.

Timekeeping has always been a vital part of military organisation. By the Second World War, wristwatches had rose to prominence as the main form of personal timekeeping. This led to militaries not only purchasing watches specifically to issue to soldiers, but also demanding that manufacturers produce watches to their exact specifications and design requirements.

These watches are characterised by their legibility, accuracy, and durability, which has ensured their continued popularity today. WatchGecko are pleased to offer a selection of field watches that live up to their origins.
