 W.W.W. - Watch, Wristlet, Waterproof 

Recognising the popularity of our WW1 Trench watch, we have continued our celebration of horological innovation with our WW2 tribute field watch. The original Trench was the result of quick re-engineering of pocket watches and wristlets.

World War Two, however, saw robust timepieces built specifically for the battle field - combat ready watches fit for the challenges of war.

VARIO 1945 D12 Field Watch is heavily inspired by the ‘Dirty Dozen’ – a collection of Swiss and British watches commissioned and worn by the British military during WWII. Their black dials, railroad-style minute tracks, luminous hands and indexes, and small seconds movements marked them as part of the iconic set and created a highly legible look that remains distinct even today. Their crowns were also designed to be easy to grip while not digging into their wrist for more comfort.

The Battle for Singapore was one of the key battles in WWII. While it forever changed the island’s trajectory, VARIO 1945 D12 Field Watch captures the spirit of bravery of the soldiers in WW2 who defended their territory and reminded us the importance to protect our independence, translating the event into a modern field watch proudly designed in Singapore.
