We have been working on the redesign of our Vintage Field Watch for over a year and I'm very excited to share with you what we have come up with. Since our first edition watch was built from parts that were not designed by us, we have always felt that we needed to develop our own designs. We first started with the dial and, nearly a year ago, published some concepts. We received positive feedback, but instead of trying to fit them into the existing case, we decided to redesign the entire watch. Our goal remained to design the watch that was very much themed after and reflected the spirit of watches worn by soldiers in WW2, such as the Type A-11 produced by the likes of Elgin, Waltham, and Hamilton. While paying tribute to the military heritage, we wanted to upgrade the original designs and create a modern timepiece that functioned well in the field and looked good suited up. We spent time researching extensively the design directions and took cues from many past and contemporary brands - Eterna, Stowa, IWC, Longines, Hamilton, Weiss Watch Company, Oris, Tag Heuer, Elgin, Laco and others.
We spent a lot of time figuring out the design of the new case and then worked on improving the fine details of the dial and hands. After many and many design iterations, we are very pleased to share with you our new Vintage Field Watch. We are excited to bring three new timepieces to market in mid 2017.
