Military Watches through the Years

Recommended Posts

I couldn't find a Topic already started regarding watches throughout the wars so I thought Id start one.

 

I've recently gotten hooked on the "SOG" Seikos. While none of these are IDd to a Trooper that wore one, they are the same style as those worn in service.

 

Always looking for more if you know of any.

 

Show us your Military watches from ANY period.

Here is a WWII private purchase watch sent home in the personal effects of 2nd Lt Lawrence C. Jones after he was KIA on Sept 3, 1943 over Italy serving with the 98th BG.

 

The watch hadn't been touched in 75 years when I got it. AS soon as I wound it, it took right off.

 

I cant find out anything about the brand " ROMAN " . It does have the hack feature, the case is silver, but the back is stainless. It is made in the USA.

Nice watches!

Here is my grandfathers watch he received from his fraternity brothers when he left the University of Illinois in 1918 to join the Army. And it still works!

And here is another Elgin watch I purchased at a militaria shop here in Dayton, Ohio. It is of WW2 vintage. It has a NOS watch band on it....and it works too!

Here is the only one I have now, sold the others. Keeping this one since it has a 1944 serial number, the year of my birth. Estate sale find, not working. Had it serviced, runs perfectly. NOS watch band from a friend. Enjoy.

Hi Edward, two very nice watches, the beautiful unblemished face's, wish my examples were this clean.

 

I will have to have a look through my shoebox to see what US watches I have to add.
