I'm thinking about buy a field watch for everyday use. Until yesterday, I was decided to buy a Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical (date version) but I realize it has long lugs and I'm not a Nato strap type of guy. I kind of give up of the idea.
So, the hunting continues.
Suddenly I fell in love with the dirty dozen military style (wish small seconds). But strangely there are not many modern options of this style.
Is it possible that our Chinese friends did not have the idea to copy (ups, I mean.. make an homage =x) such an iconic model?
Maybe you guys can help me with that. So, I'm looking for:
- mechanical/automatic movement
- under 40 mm (38 or 36 mm)
- Military style with small seconds
- Around $ 500 tops
Sure, it can be swiss, german, american, or any other nationality, but it has to be "affordable".
Just for reference, the model in my mind is this modern Vertex M100 which is for sale for unbelievable 2,500 pounds!!
