About WWII Military Watches
World War II was the most devastating war of all time and affected soldiers, men, women, and children. Approximately three percent of the world's population died during the war; a WW2 military watch is not simply a collector's item, but a valid and honorable memory of those who fought, died, and lived through the war itself. Military watches vary and largely were designed based on the branch in which the watch was used. Air Force watches typically featured an array of aviator watches, while Navy watches featured speedometers. Watches tend to feature high-quality quartz movement and were typically made in Switzerland. Each of these watches feature durable construction that has stood the test of time and wear with various band styles that include leather, stainless steel, and plastic bands. A Hamilton military watch can also feature wind up mechanisms, jewels, and unique symbols. A military pocket watch can also feature a durable chain, stopwatch clicker, and gold or silver casing.
