Military watches are designed to withstand the most extreme conditions while still being able to tell time as they should. They’re meant to be used by those whose ability to tell time can mean a difference between a good or disastrous result.
They’ve since become in-demand in the consumer market for their credentials, as well as their rugged looks and durability. Not only are they incredibly functional with many functions like water resistance and GPS monitoring, they can also look pretty good.
