Vintage military watches are those types of watches that have been produced decades ago and have been used by the military men during those times. These devices are durable enough to have lasted until this time period. Watches of these kinds are not only known for their durability and dependability during operations and battles, but they are also known for the distinctive styling that was known during the war and the post war era.

Aside from the dials that tell the time, these watches usually come with the end-of-battery-life warnings so that the user can tell if the battery’s life is about to end. Military watches are also known for their durability and toughness. Drop these watches on the floor and the watches will never be broken. That’s because these watches are expected to be used roughly in all military operations and offensives. Usually many of these watches feature protective casing that can enhances the durability of the timing devices.  Some of these protective mechanisms are the uni-directional ratcheting bezels, the crown protectors, the scratch-resistant crystals, the screw down case backs and the safety clasps that can be found on the bracelets and the bands of these watches. Usually these watches also have a sub-second dial.  This is the dial that is separate from the hour and the minute hands. The sub seconds that can be seen on these watches are usually in the ‘6’ position.
The more advanced watches feature other devices like the unit conversion slide rule, chronographs, the anti-reflective crystals and the non-radioactive luminescence. The chronographs are popular additions on vintage military watches. The watches that have these chronographs can act a timekeeping device or can be a stopwatch as well. Chronographs come in many types as well; and these include the analog chronographs, the digital chronographs and the analog-digital chronographs. The analog chronographs are the ones that were first used and these devices can show the time and the stopwatch functions together with the analog hands.  The center hand will be the one used for stopwatch functions and the sub-dials are used to indicate the seconds, stopwatch minutes and hours.
