In the continuation of my "reappreciate the collection" series, I thought I'd go with a theme for the function of the watches. This week its my mechanical field watches. My initial interest in watches was solely for my military career and I mostly had hard wearing digital pieces from Suunto, Casio, and Timex. I think I'll share those in a "watches I went to war with" post later. But, discovering the field watches, their features, and their history has been a blast. I can't shake my ground tool watch roots. So here's the kit
3. Hamilton Kahki King PVD all Black on an Uncle Seiko black tropical strap. Literally the least durable in the field but the Powermatic 80 is super reliable.
4. Seiko Prospex 'Alpinist' SPB123 With Cream Dial. It comes on a green leather strap but I swapped it for this dressier blue Barton Strap
5. Last is my SRPH15 Land Tortoise green on a ZuluDiver grey tropical.
Featured next to the Tortoise are the Seiko green leather strap, my other ADPT single pass NATO, and a Bernhardt NATO that looks awesome on the Alpinist.
Emerging watch enthusiast. I know just enough to be dangerous to my bank account. Small town kid, joined the military, stuck with it for 21 years, stayed in defense. Greater DC area.
