Why We Love It

True military watches exude a kind of toughness that's hard to replicate. These watches--with their black dials, easy-to-read indices, and luminescent hands--pack a punch in a deceptively compact package. No watches exemplify this toughness more than the General Issue watches manufactured from the Vietnam War to the early 1980s.

The Department of Defense first ordered General Issue (GI) watches in 1964, to outfit soldiers in the years leading up to the conflict in Vietnam. Like the 'Dirty Dozen', the GI watches were made to resist exposure in inhospitable environments. Corrosion-resistant steel cases were utilized to protect the movement from debris, moisture, and shock that it would encounter in the jungles of Vietnam or the deserts of the Middle East.

The DoD contracted GI watches from many manufacturers, the most notable among them being Hamilton and Benrus. This particular example was produced by Benrus and has a contract date of May 1971, as stamped on the case back.

Featuring a corrosion-resistant steel case, this example is in great condition overall, showing honest wear from normal use. The luminous elements on the hands and indices have developed a warm patina, and it comes fitted to its (likely original) green nylon single-pass strap with blackened steel hardware.

Combining a sturdy construction with a respectable history of use by American service members, this example is a true testament to the versatility and timeless appeal of the GI watch - even when produced in inexpensive materials and designed to be thrown out after they have served their purpose!
