Military Watches Under $100 for EDC

Post by koimaster » July 14th 2020, 5:18pm

Watches are an integral part of many everyday carry setups. Beyond their primary use of telling time, they’re also a reflection the wearer’s personality and style. These watches have rich historical appeal as they were made for and worn in the field by infantry, Special Forces, and WWII pilots. Nowadays, military style watches are popular amongst the EDC community for their features, legibility, durability, and aesthetic. They go hand in hand with tactical gear you might already be carrying, but can easily be dressed down due to their timeless designs. In this guide, we’ll show you our recommendations for good looking, rugged watches that won’t break the bank.

3 Styles to Look For
Field Watches: The Field Watch is usually presented with a slim case, with large, easy to read indices. The thinness keeps the watch from snagging on other gear and will easily tuck under a shirt sleeve. Commonly seen with 12 and 24 hour numeral markings, these watches make telling military time an effortless task.

Pilot Watches (Flieger): The signature mark of a Flieger is the triangle at the 12 o'clock mark. These pilot watches have large faces and are reminiscent of WWII aircraft gauges that they are inspired by. Also known as “observation watches,” these timepieces make it easy to keep track of time elapsed whether you’re in the air or on the ground.

Heavy-Duty Digital: When you need a timer, calendar, stop watch, alarms, and more on your wrist, there are few better options than a heavy duty digital watch. Shockproof, waterproof, and nearly bombproof, these watches are seen in the field in modern military applications.

Now that we’ve got you acquainted with these common types of military watches, here are six of our favorite examples — all coming in at under $100:

My first guesses were Seiko, Timex and Citizen and they did indeed make the list. That Bertucci was not a bad looker, either.

And at those prices, how can you go wrong?
I have the timex scout, no problems in two years, takes a licking and keeps on ticking.
