Owning a watch in a military situation can be quite beneficial, let alone extremely important. There are some watches that are designed more specifically for military purposes, some of these watches are equipped with compasses, some with GPS and temperature gauge, and some have all of these features combined. Let’s take a look at some of the best military watches on the market.
Casio Men’s G-SHOCK – The GA 100-1A1 Military Series
First on the list we have a G-SHOCK, you may have herd about these watches in the past as they went through a huge style fad. This specific model here, the GA 100-1A1 is designed with the military in mind, and yes, it goes beyond just looks. This military timepiece is strong and shock resistant, it is also water resistant up to 200 meters, and can show the time for 29 time zones. The watch is also matte black, and encased in a resin material.
This watch really excels in the durability department as it is built to take a serious beating, which is an essential factor to consider when looking for a good military watch. There is a significant amount of positive reviews that I have read on Amazon as well, although one problem some people reported to have was a low lighting issue. Not only is this watch one of the best choices for military, it is also great for law enforcement, and best of all it sells for under $300.
Chase-Durer Men’s 246.4BB7-XL-BR Special Forces
This watch is in a whole other class compared to the above mentioned G-SHOCK, which unfortunately also means its in a whole other price bracket as well. The Chase-Durer Men’s 246.4BB7-XL-BR watch can be classified as a very serious piece of equipment used by many top ranking personnel, special forces and ops agents. This piece is also sporting a sophisticated classy look to go along with its precise movement and functions. This bad boy of course comes in a flat black color that does not reflect any light, it runs on swiss quartz movement, has a scratch proof face, a unidirectional bezel that also doubles as a compass, the stainless steel is black PVD coated for a long lasting finish.
This military watch also caters a lot towards pilots, which is Chase-Durer specialty, although this special forces model is designed specifically for military on the ground. Chase-Durer’s mission is to provide only the best time-pieces for the military at a lower price compared to some of the other watch companies.
Luminox Men’s 6402 EVO F-117 Nighthawk
Here we have a really beautifully crafted watch, called the Nighthawk. This on has a really cool swat team look to it, it’s also got the build and functionality for actual military, swat, or law enforcement work. The watch is fully blacked out, with very distinct numbering inside the face, as well as on the bezel, which is large and easy to read. The Luminox Nighthawk is built on a solid Swiss quartz movement, the face of the watch is anti-reflective which adds to its stealth.
The Luminox watch company was first created to meet the needs of the american Navy Seals. After releasing their first successful model called the Luminox Navy Seal, they received great feedback, but also had plenty requests for a new model that was proficient for night missions, and so the Nighthawk was born. This watch has an unbelievably advanced illumination technology, that works using micro gas light sources. The Nighthawk stays illuminated an readable in practically any conditions, even in pitch black and under water scenarios, making this watch a top choice for the military.
