Description

Originating in the 1880's, the field watch gained popularity during the First World War due to soldier's demands for reliable and portable timepieces. Trench fighting required quick, accurate timing so watches had to be small enough to be worn on the wrist. The battlefield environment also created a need for exceptionally water and shock resistant watches, and the Field watch quickly evolved a distinctive style – rugged and utilitarian with virtually no embellishment.

For almost a century, the Field Watch has epitomized American heritage style, and its popularity continues to grow. Over time, the style has been updated and contemporized growing in case size with the trend toward larger watches, and also with the addition of quartz movement reliability with the advent of this technology. Today Field watches come in men's and women's models, with quartz or mechanical movements and many with automatic mechanical movements.
