A12 Dirty Dozen
The Iconic WW2 Field Watch
Quite possibly the most famous military field watch of all time, the WW2 "Dirty Dozen" is an iconic collection of service watches from twelve historic Swiss brands. Compact, legible, and waterproof this design was on the wrist of soldiers during the most decisive moments of the European campaign.
Our version, the A12 Dirty Dozen is an authentic 36mm hand-wound homage to the 1940s design spec, borrowing elements from across the original lineup to create a fitting "13th model" to complement the core collection.
D4 Arctic Diver
1970s Naval Combat Diver
Starting in the late 1950s the British Ministry of Defense began a collaboration with Rolex to develop a combat dive watch for the Special Boat Service. While 4 unique models were developed over the next 20 years, the most iconic and collectible of these "Milsubs" was the 5517, which is the only model with no civilian equivalent. Featuring bars welded to the lugs, it's the only Submariner model that cannot be worn with a bracelet.
Our D4 Arctic Solar diver (and D5 auto version) is strongly influenced by the 5517 in size, form, and function. A key example is the oversized coin-edge bezel which follows the military requirement of being easy to operate in cold ocean conditions while wearing gloves.
C3 Korean Field
1950s American Service Watch
Unlike the service watches of the Second World War, which have a range of modern interpretations and homages, the timepieces of the Korean War have largely been forgotten. Last year, we launched the C3 Korean Field to help remedy this imbalance, and serve as a reminder of the service and sacrifice of the allied forces in this conflict.
Unlike most military homage pieces, the C3 Korean Field is functional and affordable thanks to it's USA-built quartz movement.
