Military Watches at Ryda – Get outside!

Ever since the first world war, and probably even before that, military personnel all over the world had started replacing their pocket watches with wrist watches, for more accurate and better time management. Pocket watches were sometimes cumbersome on the battlefield, and the need arose to give the troops and their commanding generals a watch that is accurate and is easy to use, even when on the battlefield. Many major watch manufacturers started making watches specially designed for the military, by the first world war.

The exact origins aren’t known but it is said that military wrist watches first came into use in the 1880s. But it was the first world war that cemented their place. The first world war saw the rise of luminous military watches with a steel/ metal cover knows as the shrapnel cover to protect the glass dial of the watch. By the time the second world war came, military watches had made their way into aeronautics and navy as well, with every officer who needed to keep a track of the time having a wristwatch. When the early 50s rolled around, the wristwatch had become a staple and could be seen on every man’s hand.

The military watch earlier was common only among defense personnel but now it has become a style of watches.
