    Bigger version of a military dirty dozen watch ?

    Is there any brand / homage watches that have design of the military dirty dozen but bigger version of it?

    Preferably 42mm and bigger.

    What does it look like?
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    I'm sure there's plenty of black dial with subsecond,
    the size (42+) is the challenge

    Time has the Fairfield subsecond (but only at 41mm if I'm no mistaken)

    MKII has several military homage watches including the Hawkinge which is based on WWII flight watches.

    Well, there's the Vertex vintage reissue at 40mm. At least I think it's 40mm. You need a secret code just to look at their website; the pre-orders were apparently by invitation only, which guarantees that I'll never buy one.

    Following.

    There are plenty of field watches with a sub seconds, but it depends on how close you want to get. I'm not 100% satisfied with the watch I have that's similar.

    42mm+ sizing is almost required for me, 40mm+ is a MUST. I'd have zero interest in a 35-38mm rebuild of an original, especially something like the JLC with the huge bezel (wears small for its small size.)
    Choose a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life because that field isn't hiring.

    The RGM Model 150 has sort of a Dirty Dozen vibe in a 42 mm package. Not particularly affordable, though.

    I think your best bets in the current market are the Vertex or my favorite the Smiths PRS-29b at 39 mm.
    If I fail to reply to your inane post just assume you are on the ignore list.

    ...and this one is a closer look as far as the sub-seconds goes. 44mm.
