There are plenty of good reasons why so much military stuff works its way into the average civilian’s daily wardrobe—and the rugged field watch is no exception. For one thing, military goods are designed to literally stand up to battle, which generally speaks well to durability and functionality in non-combat situations. For another, whether we’re talking about bucket hats, bomber jackets or, yes, field watches (a.k.a. infantry watches), military gear tends to have a particular kind of rugged, honest appeal that looks extra fresh with jeans, crisp white tees and other workwear staples. Such is definitely the case with the 14 classic field watches below, which will bring a subtle military flavor to your look—no basic training required.
