If there was one style of watch that really got me into this hobby, it is field watches. There may be some bias to this, as I was always fascinated by the military field watches my Father and Grandfathers had in Vietnam, Korea and World War II, respectively. Before heading down the path of the WIS, I spent many nights reading up on the history of these watches, etc. As a result of this (and a chance reading about the company in an outdoor magazine), the first nice watch watch that I purchased was a Bertucci Titanium Field Watch. Although Bertucci makes many field watches, I was drawn to the A-4T Yankee because of its military styling. The larger size, Swiss movement and titanium case were all nice features, also.
As I put this watch on this morning, it occurred to me; I don't see a lot of field watches 'round here. There are other 'military' watches... Pilot Watches, Nav Watches, Vostoks, etc. I suppose Luminor and Radiomir, homage or not, are technically military based on their origin. I do see those. And an @$$load of subs come to mind. Just few field watches.
Am I imagining this? What are your thoughts? And if you have a field watch, slap a picture on the post. I'd love to see what's around.
I'll start the bidding...
