Vario 1945 D12 Field Watch featured on The Time Bum
A good Dirty Dozen watch needs certain key features. It will have a black dial, Arabic numbers, a small seconds indicator, lume, waterproofing, and a railroad track index. After that, things can get a bit looser. The D-12 ticks those first few boxes easily, far exceeding the wartime models with modern (and non-radioactive) SuperLuminova and 100m water resistance. Vario also outfits it with an AR-coated sapphire crystal.
