Hey there. I just got out of the Army (E5 Sergeant) after five.five years and 2 deployments to Iraq. Nice to be here for the first time!
I'm looking for a specific watch but unfortunately I don't think what I want exists.
First I'll tell you what I'm looking for. Then I'll tell you some watches I have in mind.
Wrist size: 6.8" in I want something that won't look ridiculously large but also not to small on my wrist. I believe 45-48mm would be in my range.
-24 Hr display
-Superluminova hands or similar
-Rugged, Durable, Minimal Glare
-Military / Pilot style
-PVD / black
-Leather strap (particularly vintage or crocodile style)
-Semi Skel would be cool
-Busy faces are a plus
-Versatile (casual or Dressy)
Basically an old school military analog.
Here's what I am looking at. Price range is sub $500
If it helps I'm not looking for watches similar to the Seiko Monster or Taser commander.....I find them rather distasteful...not my style.
-SkyHawk A-T Black Eagle
-Nighthawk PVD version
Wenger Swiss Raid Commander
Hamilton Field Khaki Chrono
Messerschmitt Pilot or Aviator Watch
The pictured one is only 60$ does that seem like an accurate price for a special edition like this? I would buy it immediately if so. I really like the simplicity of this watch.
So what do you think?
TOP 3 as of right now (It's changing as I discover cooler watches)
-Wenger Swiss raid commando
I feel the Hamilton is out of my price range unfortunately...
